“Spot gold prices for 24 carat in Delhi were marginally up by Rs 37 as stronger rupee kept upside limited,” HDFC Securities Senior Analyst (Commodities) Tapan Patel said.
The rupee strengthened by 63 paise and closed for the day at 73.13 (provisional) against the US dollar on Thursday as positive domestic equities and weak American currency buoyed investor sentiments.
In the international market, gold was trading with gains at USD 1,895 per ounce, while silver was quoting flat at USD 23.60 per ounce.
Gold prices traded higher on Thursday on uncertainty over US stimulus and dollar fluctuations, Patel added.
