Gold prices rose in the international markets on February 25 steadying after a volatile session as investors reassessed the situation surrounding Russia's invasion of Ukraine and fresh sanctions against Moscow from the West.

At the Multi-Commodity Exchange (MCX), gold contracts fell 1.01 percent to Rs 51,022 for 10 grams at 9.46am and silver was down 1.79 percent to trade at Rs 64,850 a kilogram.

Gold prices went up on Thursday to recreate history around $1,970 level after Russia launched the onslaught on Ukraine. Later in the day, seeing no armed force response from the US and its allies, investors dumped the metal and it witnessed almost $100 fall from the top. Further sanctions by US President Joe Biden also disheartened the bulls.

Technically, in the last five days, we have not seen spot gold falling below $1,880, hence further fall is only anticipated on the break of this level, while a move above $1,930 will again attract bulls to catch yesterday's high, said Vidit Garg, Director, MyGoldKart.

Gold may continue its bull run towards the target of Rs 52,000 in MCX taking cues from the geo-political tension and higher inflation. In Comex, gold may touch the level of $1,940 and any correction in gold will be an opportunity to enter for long position.

Buy zone near Rs 51,300 for target of Rs 51,800

Sell zone below Rs 51,000 for target of Rs 50,700
