In tumultuous trade on Thursday, gold prices wobbled as the dollar touched a 20-year high, balancing support from lower Treasury yields, as monthly US inflation data signaled the Federal Reserve would likely adhere to its aggressive rate-hike path to news agency Reuters.

By 0809 GMT, spot gold had fallen 0.1 percent to $1,850.81 per ounce. According to the article, US gold futures were down 0.2 percent at $1,850.80.

"Gold prices witnessed knee-jerk reaction post-US inflation data which marginally jumped in the month of April," said Tapan Patel, Senior Analyst (Commodities) at HDFC Securities, of the market's shift. The dollar and US bond yields reacted positively to the record inflation figures, limiting gold's fall. Gold prices have been held steady near $1,850 per ounce as equities indexes and cryptocurrencies have fallen. With COMEX spot gold support at $1,830 and resistance at $1,870 per ounce, we predict gold prices to trade flat to down for the day. The MCX Gold June support and resistance levels are Rs 50,500 and Rs 51,200 per 10 grams."
