Gold and silver prices in international market
According to Reuters, gold prices edged higher on Friday but were stuck in a narrow range, as investors sought more direction from the U.S. non-farm payrolls report, considered key to the U.S. Federal Reserve’s stimulus taper schedule.
Meanwhile, spot gold rose 0.2 per cent to $1,759.34 per ounce by 0320 GMT, trading in the range of $1,760.43-$1,752.27. U.S. gold futures were flat at $1,760.10.
Gold was finding support in Asia as local investors bought the precious metal to hedge for non-farm payrolls and weekend event risk, Jeffrey Halley, senior market analyst for Asia-Pacific at OANDA said, adding “gold’s fate will be determined by the non-farm payrolls print tonight.”
The dollar index held steady below recent highs. A stronger dollar makes gold more expensive for other currency holders. Meanwhile, the U.S. 10-year Treasury yield rose to its highest since June.
