NEW DELHI: Bullion counters gained on Thursday on grim growth outlook from the US Fed Base metals and energy counters also appreciated as many economies reopened leading to a surge in demand.

Gold futures were up 0.29 per cent to Rs 46,115 while natural gas added 0.41 per cent to Rs 123.60. Crude oil futures advanced 1.2 per cent to Rs 1,934.

“US Federal Reserve’s downbeat economic projection and hopes of further economic stimulus support gold’s safe haven demand. Concerns over the next wave of virus outbreak will also assist the sentiments. Meanwhile, a steady dollar ahead of key U.S economic releases and limited physical market activities are likely to cap major gains,” said Hareesh V- Head Commodity Research at Geojit Financial Services.
