On the MCX, Gold contracts for February were trading lower by Rs 87, or 0.22 percent, at Rs 38,993 per 10 gram at 0920 hours.

At MCX, Gold prices crossed 39,000 mark and Silver prices closed above 46,800 levels. Weakness in the rupee also supported prices in the domestic market.


Experts are of the view that dips, if any, should be used to buy for a target of Rs 39,200-39,400 levels while Silver could extend rally towards 47,100-47.500 levels.
