“Spot gold for 24 Karat in Delhi cheered the festival season by gaining Rs 220 on the auspicious day of ‘Dhanteras’,” HDFC Securities, senior analyst - commodities, Tapan Patel said. Dhanteras, which is being celebrated in northern and western parts of India on Friday, is considered an auspicious day for buying gold, silver and other valuables.

Spot gold prices are expected to trade in a firm range as pick up in festival demand has raised prospects of rise in consumption in upcoming wedding season despite higher prices, Patel said. In the international market, gold was ruling higher at $ 1,506 per ounce, while silver was quoting at $ 18.05 an ounce.

“International gold prices were trading higher on global market uncertainties. Gold prices rallied on safe haven buying on Brexit concerns and weak economic data from the US,” he added.
