Gold saw some stability in last session as buying emerged in the metal after the mega crash on Monday. COMEX Gold slumped as Pfizer and BioNTech stated late-stage trial data showed Covid vaccine is more than 90% effective in preventing infection. Gold tested a near three and half month intraday low under $1850 per ounce before some witnessing some support. The metal edged up further as local retail prices moved back towards Rs 50000 per 10 grams, triggering hopes of a return in retail buying as Diwali approached.
