Gold rises 0.54% on global cues
Gold rose by 0.54% to
30,220 per 10 gram in futures trade on Thursday as participants engaged in enlarging their positions mostly supported by a firming trend overseas.
Besides, covering up of short positions by speculators also supported the upside.
At the Multi Commodity Exchange, metal for delivery in December contract gained
163, or 0.54 per cent, to trade higher at
30,220 per 10 gm in a turnover of 1,110 lots.
Similarly, the metal for delivery in far-month February next year contracts moved up by
157, or 0.53%, to
29,760 per 10 gm, clocking a business volume of 43 lots.
Analysts said recovery in gold futures was mostly in line with a firming trend overseas after US Federal Reserve Chairman nominee Janet Yellen backed stimulus until the economy and labour market improves, reducing concern the central bank?s bond-buying programme will soon be scaled back.
Globally, gold gained 0.4% to $1,287.01 an ounce in Singapore on Thursday.
