"Gold prices witnessed recovery on Monday after reporting the worst weekly decline in 15 months. The yellow metal was supported by fall in US treasury yields despite firm dollar," according to HDFC Securities, Senior Analyst (Commodities), Tapan Patel.

Navneet Damani, VP – Commodities Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services said: "Gold prices edged higher after posting a 6 per cent drop; the biggest weekly loss in 15 months as a retreat in US Treasury yields boosted the appeal of the safe-haven metal."
