Gold and silver prices on the international market:

As per Reuters, gold prices inched lower on Tuesday as investors avoided taking big positions ahead of key U.S. non-farm payroll data due later this week, an important parameter to determine the U.S. Federal Reserve's future policy stance.

Spot gold fell 0.1 per cent to $1,810.96 per ounce by 0348 GMT, while U.S. gold futures dropped 0.5 per cent to $1,813.40. Kyle Rhoda, an analyst at IG Market said, "There's a lot of spare capacity in the labor market... If there's the sense that the Fed will continue to keep policy settings accommodative medium to longer-term, that's a really good dynamic for gold prices, especially if we see inflation expectations remain relatively elevated."

"In less than a week, gold has gone from a potential breakout and breakdown candidate on the charts to a buy the dips, sell the rallies market," Avtar Sandu, a senior commodities manager at Phillip Futures, said in a note.

"Gold futures are practically moving along a flat 200-day EMA which is further indicative of a consolidating market."

The holdings of SPDR Gold Trust, the world's largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund fell 0.2% to 1,029.71 tonnes on Monday, indicative of sentiment. Silver fell 0.5 per cent to $25.30 per ounce.
