"Spot gold prices are hovering near six-year highs on growing tensions in the Middle East and dovish comments from the major central banks that boosted the yellow metal's safe-haven appeal," said Hareesh V, Head-Commodity Research, Geojit Financial Services.

"A weak dollar, which plummeted to a three-month low on expectations of an imminent interest rate cut by the US Federal Reserve, also assisted the sentiments," he said.

In the national capital, gold of 99.9 percent and 99.5 percent purity fell by Rs 100 each to Rs 34,270 and Rs 34,100 per 10 gram, respectively.
