"The rise was also fuelled by signs of slowing industrial and construction spending in the US, coupled with a decrease in inflationary pressures,", Trivedi added.

The silver rate was also quoting higher at $23.88 per ounce. In the previous trade, it had ended at $23.09 per ounce.

"Gold and silver prices were recovered and are trading positive, despite a steady dollar in the overseas market while steady moves in global equities and uncertainty over the US Fed's policies on cutting interest rates have pushed investors towards the safer asset," Pranav Mer, VP of Research (Commodity & Currency) at BlinkX and JM Financial, told the agency.

Gold is considered as a preferred mode of investment and acts as a perfect hedge against inflation. The price of gold is dependent on various factors including US dollar, government policies and global situation.
