Gold held an advance following the signing of the U.S.-China phase-one trade deal, with investors seeking to assess how consequential the accord will be for currency policy, relations between the two economies and global growth. Palladium notched yet another record.
Spot gold little changed at $1,555.98/oz at 12:42pm in Singapore; +0.6% Wednesday. Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index steady after -0.1% Wednesday.
