Brokerage firm Motilal Oswal in its outlook, expects gold prices in India to surpass Rs 47000 per 10 grams levels in the next 12 to 15 months over growing worries due to the coronavirus outbreak.

"In the last couple of sessions, we have witnessed a sharp rally in gold prices as until now there is no breakthrough of an antidote for the virus and at the same time, stimulus announcements by the PBoC is suggesting that outbreak of virus could derail the pace of Chinese economy," the brokerage firm further said.
