Gold prices on Thursday eased from the last session’s two-week high after a report that China has invited top U.S. negotiators for a new round of face-to-face talks, and is seeking to reach an initial trade agreement with the United States.
Spot gold declined by 0.2% to $1,468.09 per ounce. Prices had notched a two-week high of $1,478.80 in the previous session, before turning negative, after the U.S. passed a bill supporting Hong Kong anti-government protesters. U.S. gold futures were flat at $1,473.70 per ounce.
China will strive to reach an initial trade agreement with the United States as both sides keep communication channels open, the Chinese commerce ministry said on Thursday.
