Eldorado Gold (EGO) Stock Jumps as Gold Prices Advance

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Eldorado Gold  (EGO)  were advancing mid-Wednesday morning as gold prices gained.

Gold for December delivery was up 0.56% to $1,354.20 per ounce on the COMEX.

Analysts are projecting a rise in demand for both gold and silver, MarketWatch reports. "Rural demand [in India] for gold and silver will be on the higher side of the expectation curve," said analysts at Insignia Consultants.

As Treasury yields fall today, the dollar has begun to weaken and spurred a rise in prices for the commodity metal.

Gold struggled earlier this week following an upbeat July jobs report from the Labor Department but has since swung to green.

Eldorado Gold is a Vancouver-based global mine operator.
