Zinc prices have risen back sharply after a sharp but short-lived fall on Monday. The Zinc Futures contract on the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX) fell to a low of ₹210.65 per kg on Monday had recovered very well from there. The contract is currently trading at ₹219 per kg.


The sharp bounce from Monday’s low of ₹210.65 indicates the presence of strong buyers at lower levels. The Zinc contract has resistance ahead in the ₹221-222 region. The price can rise to test this hurdle in the coming days.

The chances are looking high for the contract to breach ₹222. Such a break can take it up to ₹230 in the short-term.

If the contract reverses lower from around ₹222, it can fall back to ₹215 and even ₹210 levels again. The price action around ₹222 will need a close watch in the coming days.
