At the Multi Commodity Exchange, metal for delivery in October gained Rs 428, or 1.34 percent, to trade higher at Rs 32,304 per 10 gm in a turnover of 845 lots.
Similarly, the metal for delivery in far-month December spurted by Rs 284, or 1.21 percent, to Rs 32,220 per 10 gm, clocking a business volume of 52 lots.
Analysts said apart from sliding rupee, a firming trend in the global market as investors weighed the outlook for stimulus in the US, with a drop in durable goods orders adding to signs that debt-buying may be sustained, influenced gold prices at futures trade here.
Globally, gold rose 0.20 percent to USD 1,407.42 an ounce in Singapore on Tuesday, the highest price since June 7.
Silver rises 1.57 percent
Silver futures prices on Tuesday spurted by 1.57 percent to Rs 54,630 per kg as speculators created positions even as metal declined in Asian trade.
At the Multi Commodity Exchange, silver for delivery in September traded higher by Rs 843, or 1.57 percent, to Rs 54,630 per kg in business turnover of 905 lots.
On the similar lines, the white metal for delivery in far-month December traded Rs 829, or 1.51 percent, higher at Rs 55,660 per kg in a turnover of 91 lots.
In the international market, silver, however, declined 1 percent to USD 24.07 an ounce after climbing to USD 24.41 on Monday, the highest since May.
Market analysts said the rise in silver futures was mostly attributed to huge positions created by speculators but metal's weakness overseas, capped the gains.
Besides, sliding rupee which again breached 65-mark against the dollar also supported the rise in gold futures.
