Gold rate today: Yellow metal trades flat at Rs 48,000; silver falls Rs 100

NEW DELHI: Gold prices were unchanged in Tuesday’s session as a weaker US dollar offset firm bond yields.

Ravi Singh, Vice President & Head of Research, Share India said that the drop in US bond yields after the dovish approach of the Fed on monetary tightening pulled gold prices higher. “The inflation concerns have increased the safe-haven appeal and supporting the prices. Although, the improved US jobs report, strong equity markets and ETF outflows have put downward pressure on gold, making it range-bound,” he said.
