Gold and silver prices in India have rebounded from one-year low levels of ₹44,100 hit last week, helped by a rebound in global rates and coronavirus concerns.

“Immediate resistance of $1760 should broken to continue upticks for the day. Else, there are chances of corrective selling but stiff support is placed at $1680, breaking the same is required to extend the momentum,” said domestic brokerage Geojit.

On MCX, gold faces resistance at ₹46,150 and support at ₹44,100, it said.

Among other precious metals, silver fell 0.3% to $25.10 while palladium was down 0.4% to $2,674.91.
