Gold prices rose on Wednesday, hovering near a seven-week high hit earlier this week, as a softer dollar and a retreat in U.S. Treasury yields lifted demand for the safe-haven metal.
Spot gold was up 0.5% to $1,786.80 per ounce at 0657 GMT, after hitting $1,789.77 on Monday, its highest since Feb. 25. U.S. gold futures gained 0.5% to $1,786.90 per ounce.
“The U.S. dollar had edged lower this morning, supporting prices, with gold’s upward momentum from overnight continuing in Asia,” OANDA senior market analyst Jeffrey Halley said.
