    Talking to CNBC-TV18, Chirag Sheth, Senior Research Consultant, Metals Focus, said that there's support coming in at lower levels because of the increased buying due to lower costs. However, he added, "We are not seeing any significant physical buying taking place. So, people are still waiting for what is likely to come out of Fed."
    Sheth believes that gold market is poised to go down towards $1,650 per ounce by end of this year. "But in the short term a bit of bounce back can happen and then markets can again go back to lower levels."
