: Gold prices rose, on Thursday, to their highest level in two weeks, with the decline in the dollar and US Treasury bond yields.
And gold rose in spot transactions 0.8 percent to $ 1669.09 an ounce by 05:40 GMT, after touching the highest price since October 13.
US gold futures also rose 0.7 percent when they settled at $1,672.20 an ounce.
The dollar extended its losses to reach its lowest level in more than a month against rival currencies, making gold less expensive for holders of other currencies.
Ten-year US Treasury yields fell to their lowest level in a week.
The Federal Reserve is still widely expected to raise interest rates by 75 basis points in November. Gold is very sensitive to rising US interest rates, because it increases the opportunity cost of owning the precious metal, which does not generate a fixed return.
As for other precious metals, silver rose 0.86 percent to $19.51 an ounce, platinum rose 3.8 percent to $949.54 an ounce, and palladium increased one percent to $1942.75.
