    Gold prices up on firm demand in domestic markets
    Tracking a firming trend overseas as investors increased physical purchases, gold prices rose by 0.25% to Rs. 26,429 per 10gm in futures trading on Tuesday.

    Besides covering-up of short positions by speculators fearing further rise, firm demand in the domestic spot markets also influenced gold prices.

    Analysts said sustained rise in the global markets after investors increased physical purchases after recent plunge, supported the rise in gold prices at futures trade here.

    Further, covering-up of short positions by speculators and rising demand at current levels in the domestic spot market also influenced prices, they said.
