“Gold has moved higher as demand was boosted by worries over a spike in COVID-19 cases and expectations of more stimulus measures. EU leaders agreed on a 750-billion-euro stimulus plan for regional economies hard-hit by the pandemic. The US is also working on a $1 trillion relief bill,” said Jigar Trivedi, Research Analyst- Commodities Fundamental, Anand Rathi Shares & Stock Brokers.
