Gold prices were higher for a sixth straight session on Friday, scaling over Rs204,000 as deepening political tensions triggered a fresh wave of concerns regarding a prolonged economic crisis.

Data released by All-Pakistan Sarafa Gems and Jewellers Association (APSGJA) showed that the price of gold (24 carats) increased by Rs700 per tola and Rs600 per 10 grams to settle at Rs204,200 and Rs175,068.

Gold barely responded to the appreciation of the Pakistani rupee against the US dollar, and moved in a narrow range staying above the key threshold of Rs200,000 per tola.

Cumulatively, the precious commodity has gained Rs6,700 per tola in the six sessions (Saturday-Friday).

As the other markets slide investors generally find refuge in gold to maintain a low-risk profile.

A likely economic contraction looms over Pakistan amid political and economic uncertainties and a holdup in the revival of the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) loan.

The association said prices in the local market remained lower by Rs4,000 per tola as compared with the rates in Dubai’s gold market.
