Gold Rate Today: Gold prices edge up on improved spot demand
NEW DELHI: Gold prices edged up in futures trade on Friday, supported by improved demand by jewellers at the spot market and weakness of Indian rupee against US dollar.

Weak rupee makes the import of gold costlier and pushes the price of the precious metal higher.

However, a rise in the stock market lured investors to trim their positions in safe-haven metal and look towards riskier equities.

Weak global sentiment due to dollar's rise also capped the gains of the yellow metal.

In the global markets, gold fell on a firmer dollar and increased investor appetite for riskier assets due to strong US data and corporate results.

A strong dollar means gold price will depreciate as the commodity becomes dearer in other currencies, causing a fall in its demand.
