Gold Spot Index prices this morning moved around US$1,680 (Bt54,573) per ounce after the price decreased by $32.9 to $1,698.80 per ounce at Friday’s close.

The gold price dropped due to a mass sell-off after news reports that Covid-19 antiviral drug research was seeing progress, while the US government prepared to resume economic activities after the number of Covid-19 cases dropped in many states.

Meanwhile, the Hong Kong gold price dropped by HK$190 to $15,480 (Bt64,877) per tael.
