Gold and silver rebound from their lows amid weakness in the dollar index and hopes for further stimulus from the US Federal Reserve to support the economy on Monday.

The Dollar index slipped from a two-month peak and supported gold and silver again.  Discussions between U.S. Democrats and Republicans on a second financial stimulus package for Americans are ongoing and analysts are hopeful the same will be through soon.

Gold and silver breached key resistance in Monday's session in the international markets. Gold gained 0.97 percent and settled at $1882.30 per troy ounce and silver also gained 2.74 percent and settled at $23.60 per troy ounce.

Gold December futures contract settled at 50138 per 10 gram and the silver December futures contract settled at 60396 per one kilogram in the previous trading session.

“At MCX, if gold prices sustain above 50100 per 10-gram levels, then it could test 50330-50500 levels again, while 49800 is likely to act as a major support for the gold,” Manoj Jain, Director (Head-Commodity & Currency Research) at Prithvi Finmart told Moneycontrol.

“At MCX, if silver prices sustain above 60,220, then the momentum could extend 60800-61500 levels, while Rs 59200 is likely to act as a major support for the silver. We expect both the precious metals remain volatile in today's session and both side moves are expected,” he said.

COMEX gold trades moderately higher near $1890/oz after a 0.9% gain yesterday. Gold has bounced back from $1850/oz level gaining support from a correction in the US dollar index and modest ETF inflows.

Gold has bounced back from key levels however it now needs to break past the $1906-1910/oz level to result in extended gains.  While the US dollar is off the lows, a sharp decline may come only if there is fresh development on the US front.
