International rates

According to a Reuters report, gold rose on Wednesday, boosted by concerns of an economic hit from soaring energy prices and a retreat in the dollar, as investors braced for US inflation data.

Spot gold rose 0.6% to $1,769.68 per ounce by 1024 GMT, while US gold futures gained 0.7% to $1,770.60.

The benchmark U.S. 10-year Treasury yields eased from June highs, while the dollar retreated, making bullion cheaper for overseas buyers.

There are inflationary pressures on the global economy and “gold is attempting a small upside break, but there’s not much in terms of momentum in the price action”, said Ole Hansen, an analyst at Saxo Bank.
