Gold prices rose by Rs 100 to Rs 32,870 per 10 grams on Tuesday, reported news agency Press Trust of India (PTI) quoting the All India Sarafa Association. The increase came on fresh buying by jewellers. Silver also gained Rs 50 to Rs 37,550 per kg on increased offtake by industrial units. Sentiment turned upbeat on the back of a pick-up in buying support from local jewellers, but a weak trend overseas capped the gains, Press Trust of India quoted traders as saying.
Here are five things to know about gold and silver prices today:
1. Globally, gold prices inched lower on Tuesday, dropping for the first time in four sessions, as the dollar rebounded from multi-week lows amid simmering Sino-US trade tensions and as bullion failed to surpass a strong technical resistance, reported news agency Reuters.
2. Spot gold was down 0.2 per cent at $1,282.86 per ounce in intraday trade, after touching its highest since May 17 at $1,287.32 in the previous session. US gold futures were down 0.1 per cent at $1,281.80 an ounce.
