Gold and silver prices in international market

As per the report by Reuters, gold prices went up and are poised for a second weekly gain on Friday on the global front. Gold inched higher as a softer dollar provided some relief against higher U.S. bond yields and increased expectations that central banks could start easing economic support.

Meanwhile, spot gold edged 0.1 per cent higher to $1,785.00 per ounce and U.S. gold futures rose 0.2 per cent higher to $1,786.00, as per the reports. On the other hand, bullion prices, which were en route to the second week of gains, have traded in a broad $1,749-$1,800 range so far in October.

Fed Governor Christopher Waller was quoted by Reuters as saying that the U.S. Federal Reserve should allow its $8 trillion balance sheet to shrink over the next couple of years.

In the international market, spot silver was up 0.2 per cent to $24.18 an ounce and platinum rose 0.5 per cent at $1,053.80 per ounce.
