    Gold prices rose marginally by Rs 11 to Rs 53,132 per 10 gram in the national capital on Thursday following a rally in the international market, according to HDFC Securities. Silver prices also jumped Rs 1,554 to Rs 68,349 per kg.

    Globally, gold prices rose for a third straight session, supported by a weaker US dollar, with investors awaiting the release of Chinese economic data due later in the day.

    Spot gold was up 0.4 per cent at $1,960.29 per ounce by 0044 GMT. However, bullion has fallen nearly 4 per cent so far this week and was on track for its first weekly decline since early June. US gold futures eased 0.2 per cent to $1,967.50 per ounce.

    The dollar index fell for a third consecutive session against its rivals, making gold cheaper for holders of other currencies.

    SPDR Gold Trust, the world's largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund, said its holdings rose 0.1 per cent to 1,252.09 tonnes on Thursday.

    Silver edged 0.1 per cent lower to $27.53 per ounce, platinum was steady at $956.96 and palladium eased 0.1 per cent to $2,163.97.
