Globally, gold held ground after rising to a 19-month peak in the last session, as a stronger dollar and higher Treasury yields countered support from safe-haven demand stemming from the Ukraine crisis. Spot gold was flat at $2,053.99 per ounce, after climbing to $2,069.89 in the previous session, a whisker away from its record $2,072.49 scaled in August 2020. U.S. gold futures rose 0.9 per cent to $2,061.40.
Ravi Singh, Vice-President and Head of Research, ShareIndia: "The war has increased the safe-haven demand for gold, while investors have become more risk-averse and have continued selling equities. Gold prices are making new highs day by day and the inflation fears have added more fuel to its rally."
He suggested, "Buy Zone near - Rs 54,000 for the target of Rs 54,500. Sell Zone below - Rs 53,800 for the target of Rs 53,500."
