Spot gold was up 0.1 per cent at $1,823.40 per ounce, as of 0804 GMT, in choppy trade. Earlier in the session, it hit its lowest since Feb. 7. US gold futures were flat at $1,824.60, the report said.
Commenting on the gold market, Nirpendra Yadav, Senior Commodity Research Analyst at Swastika Investmart said, “Technically, gold prices are likely to continue lower in today’s session, and any price rise towards resistance levels could be a selling opportunity. Gold faces resistance at Rs 50,700 and support at Rs 50,000, with a drop to Rs 49,500 levels possible. Silver has Rs 58,000 as support and Rs 60,500 as resistance.”
