In the global market, gold prices rose on Tuesday as US Treasury yields weakened, but the lack of any market-moving catalysts kept investors on the sidelines, the news outlet said Reuters reported.

Commenting on bar prices, Tapan Patel, Senior Analyst (Commodities) at HDFC Securities said: “Gold prices, which were trading firm with spot gold prices on the COMEX, traded 0.28% higher on Tuesday at nearly $1827 an ounce. Gold August futures contract at MCX traded 0.47% higher near Rs 50,889 per 10 grams by midday session. Gold prices have held range bound trading on mixed global signals on slowdown concerns and broader US Federal Reserve rate hike expectations. Weak stock indices and a possible ban on Russian gold have limited the gold price’s downside, while the dollar has remained stable. We expect gold prices to trade sideways and rise throughout the day with COMEX spot gold support at $1,810 and resistance at $1,840 an ounce. MCX Gold August support stands at 50,500 rupees and resistance at 51,200 rupees per 10 grams.”
