International rates

A Reuters report said that gold prices edged higher on Friday as the dollar eased slightly, while investors focused on the U.S. labour market data due later in the day, considered key to the Federal Reserve’s schedule for tapering monetary stimulus.

Spot gold rose 0.4% to $1,762.49 per ounce by 1124 GMT, while U.S. gold futures were up 0.2% at $1,762.60.

The dollar eased, buoying precious metal’s appeal for those holding other currencies.

The yellow metal also seemed to have found some support on comments from an advisor that a default on China Evergrande’s offshore bond obligations was “imminent”.

Spot silver fell 0.1% to $22.57 per ounce. Platinum rose 2.6% to $1,004.81, and palladium gained 4% to $2,038.12.
