"Gold prices continued upside with international spot gold prices opening higher on Monday, rallying above $1,680. Spot gold for 24 karat in Delhi rallied as much as Rs 953 on weaker rupee and strong international prices," HDFC Securities Senior Analyst (Commodities) Tapan Patel said.

The spot rupee was trading around 22 paise weaker against the dollar during the day, he added.

The Indian rupee had declined by 30 paise to 71.94 against the US dollar in opening trade on Monday amid muted opening in domestic equities and strengthening of the American currency overseas.

In the international market, both gold and silver were trading higher at $1,682 per ounce and $18.80 per ounce, respectively.

"Gold prices have rallied after latest reports showing coronavirus has spread beyond China with rise in infections and deaths in South Korea, Middle East and Italy," Patel added.
