The international prices of Gold and Silver remained stable throughout the day on Friday despite some weakness in Gold and Silver in the domestic markets, the VP said. Gold was trading at USD 1750 while Silver was trading around USD 25.30.   

Gupta said that the outlook for Gold and Silver remained strong in the near to medium term and the bullion may see a further uptick. An upside up to USD 1800 is now open for Gold, the VP said.

Domestically, Gold and Silver could become expensive from the current levels on two counts. One was the international prices going up. The resurgence of Coronavirus Pandemic could drift investments towards this haven, increasing demand for gold, Gupta said.

For domestic consumers, weakening rupee could become a setback as prices may go up also because of higher import cost. That could soon reflect in the prices. He says that it is a good time to buy Gold and Silver as the wedding season and Akshaya Tritiya may push the Gold and Silver prices, further up.     

Gupta said that the demand for Gold is seeing an uptick as the coronavirus cases see huge resurgence. Gold and Silver are considered a haven for investors at a time when the other asset classes including equity are not doing too well or there are economic uncertainties, he said.

In physical markets gold price was quoted at 48400 levels and Silver price is quoted at 69000 levels.
