KARACHI: Local bullion market continued bullish trend on Saturday, as prices increased Rs650/tola to record high of Rs94,300/tola.

According to the data released by the All Sindh Saraf Jewellers Association, gold rates in the local market rose following a surge in the rates in the international market. Similarly, 10 grams gold price raised Rs557 to Rs80,847.

In the international market, bullion rates increased $9 to $1,644/ounce.

A jeweller said international market registered an increase in the prices because of stockers, who were purchasing gold amid trade issues created after the emergence of coronavirus.

However, prices in the local market remained Rs1,500/tola lower, compared with the rates in the Dubai gold market.
