Domestic gold futures rose by 0.36 per cent on Thursday, 28 May, tracking global rates, as the country remained in the fourth phase of an extended lockdown to curb the spread of coronavirus outbreak.

The gold jewellery prices vary across India - the second largest consumer of the metal - due to excise duty, state taxes and making charges.

The gold-to-silver price ratio has witnessed erosion in values, with the white metal showing some strength following improved demand on lower price and stock scarcity amid lockdowns globally.

The ratio, which indicates how much silver can be bought for one ounce of gold, had tested 124 levels in March this year following weakening silver demand because of the economic slump. In the past few decades, hardly two times the ratio has touched or exceeded 100.

On the global front, gold rebounded on Thursday as deteriorating US-China relations over Beijing's move to impose a national-security law in Hong Kong fanned concerns over quick economic recovery and drove investors towards the safe-haven metal.

Spot gold was up 0.8 per cent at $1,722.70 per ounce, recovering from a two-week low of $1,693.22 touched in the previous session.

U.S. gold futures rose 0.8 per cent to $1,739.70.

Gold had dropped to its lowest in two-weeks on Wednesday as hopes of quick economic recovery drove investors towards riskier assets, although US-China tensions over Hong Kong put a floor under bullion prices.
