    Gold Up As Investors Weigh Implications Of US Tax Overhaul

    Financial markets around the globe largely put up a muted response to the passage a day earlier of U.S. tax cuts with potential benefits to company bottom lines. The long-anticipated tax change was mostly priced in.

    As per reports, tax changes offer a mixed bag for the metal.

On the other hand, tax-fueled gains in U.S. stocks and other risk-on markets had helped to drive gold to five-month lows earlier this month.

    At the MCX, gold futures for February 2017 contract ended at Rs 28497 per 10 grams, up by 0.01 per cent, after opening at Rs 28,502 against a previous close of Rs 28,493. It touched the intra-day high of Rs 28,550.
