Gold price today: Yellow metal drops over 1%; support placed near 40,850

Experts feel that investors should deploy a buy on dips strategy with resistance firmly placed near 42000 levels on the MCX Gold.

India Gold MCX April futures slipped more than 1 percent on March 25 tracking muted trend seen in the international Gold prices which have also given up the gains as investors are looking to cash liquidate positions to cover losses in other assets.

International gold is likely to remain volatile as positive rhetoric from the US lawmakers regarding a stimulus bill to cushion the economic damage from the coronavirus outbreak lifted investor sentiment.

On the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX), April gold contracts were trading lower by Rs 300, or 0.7 percent, at Rs 41,079 per 10 gram at 09:40 hours.
