In the international market, the price of gold moved lower as a jump in US Treasury yields forced investors to reassess their positions again after a steep retreat from a record peak earlier this week.

Spot gold was seen trading 0.1 per cent lower at $1,950.94 per ounce.

Gold has been one of the most consistent gainers through the six months of coronavirus-led turmoil in financial markets, benefiting from a flood of capital into the world economy and investors seeking a relatively safe location to park money with interest rates at or near zero.

Typically, any sign of uncertainty in the financial markets boosts the appeal of gold as a safe-haven bet, as investors rush away from riskier asset classes. (Also Read: Gold's "Dream Run" May Continue, Say Analysts)

What Analysts Say

"After a sharp fall from record high level of near $2089/oz to a three-week low of near $1874/oz, gold has bounced back to trade near $1950/oz," said Ravindra Rao, VP-head commodity research, Kotak Securities.

"Gold's sharp rally in last few weeks made it vulnerable to profit-taking, however the sharp rebound shows that market players are still upbeat about its future outlook. Trend in US dollar continues to be the key price determining factor."
