Gold was trading with mild gains in the Indian market in the morning session on September 13, tracking muted global cues. At 10 am, MCX October gold was trading 0.16 percent higher at Rs 46,881.
Gold prices struggled to climb in the global markets as the US dollar gained against its peers ahead of the US consumer price prints due this week. The prices could influence the US Fed's decision on tapering the post-pandemic stimulus.
A record rise in the US inflation could prod the Federal Reserve to tighten its monetary policy sooner than expected and support the dollar index again, experts said.
However, rising coronavirus cases and geo-political tensions are supporting the precious metal at lower levels.

Firmness in the dollar is weighing on gold price amid persisting debate about Fed’s monetary tightening. Weaker investor interest, as evident from ETF outflows, is also weighing on gold.
Geopolitical tensions, rising inflation, US-China tensions, China’s regulatory measures and persisting virus risks are supporting the metal.
Gold has come off its highs and may remain under pressure over Fed's tightening concerns but prices may remain close to $1,800 amid increasing challenges to the global economy.
