The actively traded gold for April delivery on the Multi Commodity Exchange was 0.11 percent higher at 29,378 rupees per 10 grams, after hitting a low of 29,111 rupees last week, a level last seen in mid-July.
"Most negative factors have been priced in. Gold is finding good physical bargain hunting interest at lower levels," said Gnanasekar Thiagarajan, director with Commtrendz Research.
Gold has shed about 5 percent so far in 2013, weighed by a stronger dollar overseas amid optimism of a bounce back in U.S. economy. Gold acts as an alternative investment to the dollar.
