Gold jumped on Wednesday after the US dollar and Treasury yield declined and hope for a large US fiscal stimulus boosted its appeal.
Spot gold rose 0.1% to $1,857.76 per ounce by 05:37 GMT while US gold futures gained 0.8% to $1,859.20.
IG Market analyst Kyle Rodda said, "the big picture is it's still a very constructive year for gold. With real yields remaining rather negative and the dollar continuing its path lower as the year unfolds, gold remains an attractive proposition."
