COMEX gold trades marginally higher near $1820/oz after a 1.3% gain in the previous session. Gold trades higher supported by drop in US bond yields as Fed decided to take a gradual approach on monetary tightening. Also supporting price is inflation concerns. However, weighing on price is upbeat US jobs report, continuing strength in equity markets and ETF outflows. Gold has rallied sharply in last few sessions amid lack of any aggressive move by Fed but may struggle to build on the gains amid improved risk sentiment.
