    Domestic gold prices mildly extended losses on Tuesday even as global benchmarks held ground on the back of a strong dollar.
    MCX gold August futures fell 0.3 percent to touch the intraday low of Rs 50,211 per 10 grams as of 11:31 am. Silver followed suit with the white metals future falling 1.1 percent to Rs 55,501 per kilogram on the last count.
    Ravindra Rao, VP-Head Commodity Research at Kotak Securities, said, “Gold has stalled near $1700/oz level after the sharp sell-off in last few days however a sustained rise is still difficult as outlook for US dollar still remains firm.”
