“Spot gold prices for 24 carat in Delhi were higher by ₹418 with rally in international prices. However, the upside in gold prices in India was capped with gains in rupee,” HDFC Securities Senior Analyst (Commodities) Tapan Patel said.
The rupee strengthened 73 paise and crossed the crucial 73-mark against the U.S. Dollar on Tuesday on the back of a weak American currency and positive domestic equities.
In the global market, gold was trading with gains at $1,988 per ounce and silver was marginally up at $28.77 per ounce.
“Gold prices extended gains with dollar decline,” Mr. Patel said.
