In the international markets, spot gold at Comex was trading at USD 2,332 per ounce, up USD 5 from the previous close.

“Gold prices remained positive, as US participants returned from the Juneteenth holiday with a buying sentiment. This was driven by weak retail sales data and lower inflation figures.

“Expectations for a rate cut in September are growing, but if any US Fed members hint at a delay beyond September, profit booking in gold is likely,” Jateen Trivedi, VP Research Analyst – Commodity and Currency at LKP Securities, said.

“…current support levels are reinforced by economic data, while any signals of prolonged higher rates could trigger selling pressure,” Trivedi added.

Additionally, silver was quoting higher at USD 30.15 per ounce. In the previous session, it had closed at USD 29.40 per ounce.

“Gold prices are trading in positive territory as traders/ investors turn net-buyers after a recent World Gold Council survey showed most of the central banks would continue to diversify their reserves with gold, even at current high prices.

“The bullion was also supported by a rise in safe-haven demand due to the Middle East tension and political uncertainty in France,” Pranav Mer, Vice President, EBG – Commodity & Currency Research at JM Financial Services Ltd, said.
