Gold and silver prices on the international market

According to Reuters, gold prices were slightly higher on Monday, which was supported by easing US bond yields and mounting concerns over Delta variant infections.

Meanwhile, the dollar index held close to a 3-and-a-half-month peak hit last week, weighing on the yellow metal’s appeal. Gold has become more expensive for other currency holders with a stronger dollar.

Spot gold rose by 0.3 per cent to $1,806.32 per ounce. U.S. gold futures climbed by 0.3 per cent to $1,806.30.

After slipping by 0.5 per cent last week, silver rose by 0.3 per cent to $25.24 per ounce.

Mumbai Rs 46,870 Rs 67,000
Chennai Rs 45,200 Rs 72,100

Gold and silver heavily depend on international prices and are calculated by keeping the latter as a basis in India. Other factors like the USD to INR conversion rate, the supply and demand of gold and silver in MCX trading also play a significant role in determining the prices of gold and silver.
