The price of gold dropped by THB50 per baht weight in morning trade on Wednesday.

A Gold Traders Association report at 9.24am showed the buying price of a gold bar at THB27,300 per baht weight and selling price at THB27,400, while gold ornaments cost THB26,802.88 and THB27,900, respectively.

The spot gold price on Wednesday morning was moving around US$1,732 (THB57,832) per ounce after Comex gold at close on Tuesday rose by $5.20 to $1,731.70 due to support in gold purchases after the price has been falling heavily. Furthermore, weak US economic data is proving a supporting factor in buying the metal as a safe-haven asset.

The Hong Kong gold price also dropped by HK$90 to $16,020 (THB68,732) per tael, the Chinese Gold and Silver Exchange Society reported.
