At 9.56 am, gold contracts were trading lower by 0.05 percent at Rs 50,752 for 10 grams on the Multi-Commodity Exchange (MCX), while silver was trading flat at Rs 57,131 a kilogram.

Gold and silver prices suffered heavy losses in the first half of the previous week and dropped to their weakest levels since September 2021.
The broad-based dollar strength amid growing recession fears and the worsening demand outlook for the yellow metal caused precious metals to close in the negative territory for the fourth straight week.
Gold has support at $1,730-1,717 a troy ounce, while resistance is at $1,752-1,764. Silver has support at $19.05-18.80, while resistance is at $19.40-19.62.
In rupee terms, gold has support at Rs 50,450–50,240, while resistance is at Rs 50,960–51,140. Silver has support at Rs 56,550-55,850 a kg, while resistance is at Rs 57,680–57,980.

In the previous week, most of the data that emerged from the US was better than the forecast, which may ease the concern of a recession. However, precious metals look oversold and some recovery is expected but the upside may remain limited.
