    Silver prices also rose by Rs 586 to Rs 49,990 per kg from Rs 49,404 per kg.

    "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.
