Globally, gold prices rose on Thursday, holding firm above the key $1900 per ounce level, as a weaker US dollar and concerns over the global economic recovery from the mounting COVID-19 cases boosted demand for the safe-haven metal.
NEW DELHI: Gold witnessed profit booking in Thursday's morning session as equities rose on improving macro data from the US while silver was back to winning ways after a massive slump in prices over the last couple of sessions.

Rising fuel costs lifted US consumer prices 0.6 per cent last month, compared with expectations for 0.3 per cent, leaving core inflation at 1.6 per cent for the year to July. Gold tends to gain when interest rates are low and political and economic uncertainties are high, and vice versa.

Gold futures on MCX were down 0.14 per cent or Rs 74 at Rs 52,180 per 10 grams. Silver futures added 0.44 per cent or Rs 293 to Rs 67,046 per kg.

The dollar index fell 0.2 per cent against its rivals, making gold less expensive for holders of other currencies.
