Gold Futures marginally up on strong global cues
Gold Futures were trading marginally higher on the MCX following strong global cues. Gold of 10 grammes was trading at Rs 27,432, up Rs 59, while Silver was trading higher by Rs 171 at Rs 41,067.

Gold and silver have been trading steady in the absence of major global cues. Dealers say the metal would continue to trade in a range, though a sharp appreciation in the rupee would send gold prices lower.

International gold prices have been steady, but, may rally should the new government under Narendra Modi lift gold prices. Prices in the global markets do find direction from Indian consumption, since India is one of the biggest consumers of gold.

On Wednesday, The Reserve Bank eased gold import norms by allowing select trading houses, in addition to already permitted banks, to procure the precious metal to boost exports. Further measures by the Reserve Bank of India to liberalise imports cannot be ruled out.
