Gold and Silver prices on international market:

As per Reuters, gold prices inched up on Friday, as rising concerns over the spread of the coronavirus Delta variant and its impact on economic recovery soured risk sentiment, but a stronger dollar capped further gains.

Meanwhile, spot gold rose 0.2 per cent to $1,784.07 per ounce by 352 GMT and is up about 0.3 per cent for the week. U.S. gold futures were up 0.3 per cent at $1,786.10.

DailyFX currency strategist Ilya Spivak said, “Risk aversion means that capital is going into the safety of bonds, which is pulling down on yields and so yields haven’t really moved very much and of course that conflicted influence is likewise reflected in gold.”

A stronger dollar makes the greenback-denominated gold more expensive for holders of other currencies. Silver eased 0.1 per cent to $23.22 per ounce and was headed for third straight weekly decline.
