COMEX Gold for June delivery was rising $13.20 to $1,466.80 an ounce. The gold price traded as high as 1,478.30 and as low as $1,461.6 an ounce, while the spot price was up $1.40, according to Kitco's gold index.
"Although Germany is expected to resist dropping key rates from its current 0.75% level, so, the grinding slowdown in the other EU member economies may win the day," Peter Hug, global trading director at Kitco Metals, said in a note. "On its face, added liquidity should be price supportive for the metal."
