Gold and silver prices in international market
As per Reuters, gold traded within a tight range on Wednesday as higher U.S. Treasury yields and improved risk appetite countered concerns about the rapidly spreading Omicron coronavirus variant.
Meanwhile, spot gold was little changed at $1,789.12 per ounce by 0126 GMT. U.S. gold futures also remained unchanged, at $1,789.50.
U.S. Treasury yields were higher on Tuesday as traders focused on optimistic economic conditions and discounted inflation fears at a 20-year bond auction. Higher yields increase the opportunity cost of holding bullion, which pays no interest.
The dollar index edged lower, starting a third successive session under pressure as investors favoured riskier currencies and asset classes.
On the other hand, spot silver was down 0.1 per cent at $22.47 an ounce, platinum shed 0.3 per cent to $931.99 and palladium was up 0.2 per cent at $1,795.17.
