    Gold prices in the national capital jumped by Rs 102 to Rs 49,228 per 10 gram on Tuesday amid rupee depreciation, according to HDFC Securities. Silver, however, declined by Rs 249 to Rs 50,573 per kg.

    Globally, gold steadied near a more than eight-year high on Wednesday, as worries over surging coronavirus cases and hopes of more stimulus measures from the US Federal Reserve lifted demand for the safe-haven metal.

    Spot gold was little changed at $1,792.79 per ounce by 0241 GMT, after hitting its highest since Nov 2011 at $1,796.93 on Tuesday, just a few dollars away from the key $1,800 level. US gold futures eased 0.2 per cent to $1,805.70.

    Gold tends to benefit from widespread stimulus measures from central banks because it is widely viewed as a hedge against inflation and currency debasement.

    Indicative of sentiment, holdings of SPDR Gold Trust rose 0.7 per cent on Tuesday. Weighing on gold, the dollar index rose 0.1 per cent.

    Palladium gained 0.3 per cent to $1,921.69 per ounce and platinum was steady at $835.45, while silver lost 0.1 per cent to $18.28.
