We expect the overall trend of both the precious metals to remain firm but one correction due to profit-taking is expected in Tuesday's session. Gold is expected to test its support level of $1,644/Rs 42,800 and Silver is expected to test $18.40/Rs 48,800 levels.

It will be an opportunity for short sellers to cover their short position. Fresh buying is expected in Gold around 42,700, and one should keep a stop loss at 42,440 for the target of 43,100-43,400. Silver can be bought around 48,800 with a stop loss of 48,400 for the target of 49,200-49,500.
