Gold steadied near a six-year peak on Thursday and silver rose to its highest in more than two years as fears of a global recession, exacerbated by the protracted U.S.-China trade war, drove interest for safe haven assets.
Spot gold was little changed at $1,539.02 an ounce. Prices rose to their highest since April 2013 on Monday at $1,554.56 an ounce. U.S. gold futures were down 0.2% at $1,546.10.
Silver rose 1.2% to $18.55 per ounce after hitting its highest since April 2017 at $18.64 earlier in the session.
