Spot gold rose 0.5 percent to $1,303.98 per ounce, having hit its highest since March 28 at $1,306.09. U.S. gold futures settled $6.40 higher at $1,308.30.
Among other precious metals, spot platinum slipped 1.5 percent to $891.75 per ounce. The metal had touched its highest since May 2018 in the previous session.
Palladium was up 0.2 percent at $1,386.01 per ounce, while silver dropped 0.1 percent to $15.23.
