Gold and silver prices in the international market:
As per Reuter, gold held steady on Monday above the key level of $1,800 per ounce, as slightly weaker U.S. Treasury yields countered an uptick in the dollar.
Meanwhile, spot gold rose 0.1 per cent to $1,809.95 per ounce by 0323 GMT, staying mostly ahead of $1,800 since closing above that level for the first time in a month last week.
U.S. gold futures were little changed at $1,811.40. The dollar index inched up from its weakest level in nearly a week, making greenback-priced gold less attractive for holders of non-U.S. currencies.
