Gold prices were underpinned by a subdued dollar on Tuesday, with investors looking ahead to US non-farm payrolls data, which could be key to the Federal Reserve’s tapering decision.

Gold prices on August 30 jumped by Rs 329 to Rs 47,478 per 10 gram tracking a sharp spike on Friday evening in the global market after the Fed chief did not give any timeline for increasing rate but the upside was capped by rupee appreciation.
Gold and silver showed some profit taking at higher levels after Friday’s strong gains. Both the precious metals were settled on a slightly weaker note in the international markets. Due to strength in the rupee both the precious metals settled on a weaker note in the domestic markets, said Manoj Kumar Jain, Director, Head-Commodity & Currency Research, Prithvifinmart Commodity Research.
