Gold inched up on November 25 in the international markets, enroute to a weekly gain, buoyed by the dollar's retreat on a perceived dovish tilt in the US Federal Reserve's interest rate hike strategy.

We suggest buying gold on dips around Rs 52550 with a stop loss of Rs 52380 for target of Rs 52850 and silver around Rs 61600 with a stop loss of Rs 61100 for target of Rs 62600.

Precious metals prices remained firm after FOMC minutes released yesterday indicated a slower pace in interest rate hikes for the coming meeting. The US dollar index remained down 0.35% yesterday, attracting investors toward precious metals. The US benchmark Treasury yield extended losses and supported precious metals prices. Thanksgiving day in the US may keep the trend range bound in bullion.

However, bias in bullion looks positive at the current levels. Technically, the trend in precious metals may remain range-bound to the upside. Gold has support at Rs 52500 and resistance is at Rs 53200. Silver has support at Rs 61500 while resistance is at Rs 62800.
