Gold rises on weaker dollar, caution on Ukraine

Những điểm chính:
  • Palladium recovers from two-month low
  • Dollar eases to two-week low

Gold rose on Wednesday, buoyed by a weaker dollar and a slight pullback in U.S. bond yields, while investors awaited more details from Russia-Ukraine talks in Turkey.

Spot gold (XAU=) rose 0.3% to $1,924.40 per ounce by 1149 GMT. U.S. gold futures (GCv1) were up 0.6% to $1,929.00.

On Tuesday, gold prices dropped as much as 1.8% to their lowest level since February 28 on signs of progress in negotiations between Russia and Ukraine before recovering to close only 0.2% lower on the day.

"The war premium seems to be eroding out of the gold price to some extent," independent analyst Ross Norman said, adding gold's strong bounce off $1,890 was encouraging.

City Index senior market analyst Matt Simpson said investors remain wary of Russia's intentions.

The U.S. dollar (DXY) fell 0.5% to a near two-week low against its rivals, making greenback-priced gold less expensive for other currency holders.

Yields on the benchmark U.S. 10-year Treasury note also eased, reducing the opportunity cost of holding zero-yield bullion.

The U.S. Treasury yield curve inverted on Tuesday for the first time since 2019, as investors priced in an aggressive rate-hiking plan by the Federal Reserve as it attempts to bring inflation down from 40-year highs.

Meanwhile, holdings of the world's largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund, SPDR Gold Trust, slipped 0.2% to 1,091.44 tonnes on Tuesday.

Spot silver (XAG=) and platinum (XPT=) both rose 0.5% to $24.86 per ounce and $987.39 respectively.

Palladium (XPD=) gained 2.3% to $2,198.98 after dipping to a more than two-month low of $2,032.97 in the last session.
