In the international markets, gold prices fell on Monday on overall optimism over this week’s coronavirus vaccine rollout in Britain and as the dollar bounced off a multi-year low. It steadied near a two-week high on Tuesday as confidence over the rollout of a COVID-19 vaccine countered the market impact of a subdued dollar and hopes for more fiscal stimulus.
Gold eased from a two-week high on Wednesday as encouraging COVID-19 vaccine news dimmed its safe-haven appeal, while investors kept a close watch on developments around a US fiscal stimulus deal. The price of precious yellow metal edged lower on Thursday, following a steep sell-off in the previous session, as a breakthrough in long-running US fiscal stimulus negotiations remained elusive.
