Spot gold at Comex was trading at USD 2,037 per ounce, up by USD 5 from its previous close in the overseas markets.

Following a drop in US bond yields, and the Federal Reserve’s stance that the central bank will begin cutting interest rates by March next year, bolstered the gold prices and extended its gains in the second consecutive session on Friday, Gandhi said.  (PTI)
