Gold prices plunged 6 percent in the month of November, its worst month in four years, as optimism over coronavirus vaccine-led economic rebound pushed investors towards risky asses and cryptocurrencies, denting the safe-haven appeal for the yellow metal.
“Gold prices were stable on a technical bounce back from oversold territory. Developments over COVID-19 vaccine and upbeat equity markets may weigh on the yellow metal prices,” said Ajay Kedia, director, Kedia Commodity Comtrade.
Gold price below Rs 48,100 look weak till Rs 47,550 level, Kedia added.
