Previously, gold prices ran up in Vietnam on Thursday, hitting a new high, on global uncertainty caused by COVID-19 and a weakening dollar.

Besides, in the global market, the precious metal also surpassed a nine-year high to above US$1,800 an ounce. This is the first time since 2011 that bullion has skyrocketed to above $1,800 an ounce as investors were cautious with stocks and the Covid-19 pandemic situation remained complex, added SGGP News.
"Gold is looking very bullish both in the short- and long-term... It has enough catalysts to take it to record territory before the end of the year," Reuters quoted Edward Moya, senior market analyst at broker OANDA, as saying.
|According to FxEmpire, gold prices moved lower consolidating for the second consecutive session after hitting a fresh 8-year high on Wednesday. For the week gold prices where higher by 1.25%. The dollar moved lower on Friday following a softer than expected US PPI report. The 10-year US treasury yield dropped sharply declining below 57% but rebounded later in the session to close above 62-basis points. Fear that COVID continues to spread through the United States, is weighing on future growth prospects and deteriorating inflation.|
