Gold prices on the Gold Spot Index this morning moved to US$1,493 (Bt48,655.80) per ounce after the price increased by $5.3 to $1,484.6 per ounce at Friday’s close due to investors turning to buy the metal as a safe haven asset amid uncertainty following the economic impact from Covid-19, which hammered the US stock index and led to the dollar falling sharply.
Meanwhile, the price in the Hong Kong gold market dropped by HK$120 to $13,860 (Bt58,221) per tael.
