Gold Price In India: Domestic gold and silver futures moved higher on Monday tracking global spot rates, supported by weakness in the US dollar as investors looked forward to the Federal Reserve’s policy meeting later this week for cues. Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX) gold futures (due for an October 5 delivery) climbed by Rs 361 – or 0.70 per cent – to end at Rs 51,680, and silver futures (December 4) settled at Rs 68,535, up Rs 607 – or 0.89 per cent – from their previous close. The gold and silver contracts had risen to as high as Rs 51,736 and Rs 68,720 respectively during the session.
In the international market, gold prices moved higher, as weakness in the dollar made the precious metals less expensive for those dealing in other currencies.
Spot gold (Comex) climbed up as much as 1.07 per cent to touch the $1,968.70 per ounce mark on Monday, and silver jumped 2.01 per cent to $27.40 per ounce. (Also Read: Is Silver The New Gold?)
