Gold prices held firm on Tuesday near a two-week high hit in the previous session, helped by a subdued dollar, while investors awaited U.S. inflation data that could provide cues on the Federal Reserve’s interest rate hike path.
Spot gold rose 0.1% to $1,725.70 per ounce, as of 0041 GMT. U.S. gold futures were down 0.2% at $1,736.80.
The dollar index hovered close to its lowest level since Aug. 26, making the greenback-priced gold less expensive for overseas buyers.
