However, the yellow metal lost some of its gains on Thursday, as the US dollar strengthened and investors awaited the outcome of the US Federal Reserve’s policy meeting.

Analysts said that gold prices could remain volatile in the coming days, as the market sentiment would be influenced by the Fed’s stance on inflation and tapering of its bond-buying programme.
