As per the Senior Commodity Research Analyst at Swastika Investmart – Nirpendra Yadav, the “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.”
