Investors can look at selling gold on every bounce towards 49,000, experts said. Overnight, US Fed’s downbeat growth outlook and ECB’s willingness to cut rates pushed the US dollar higher, putting pressure on gold, they said.

Gold and silver prices settled weaker in international markets on January 27 due to gains in the dollar index. February gold futures contract settled at $1,844.90 a troy ounce and March silver futures at $25.39 per troy ounce.
