Gold prices rose on Monday as investors sought safe havens amid fears over growing economic damage from the coronavirus after governments extended lockdowns to curtail its spread.
Spot gold was up 0.3% at $1,621.89 an ounce. U.S. gold futures edged 0.1% higher to $1,625.70.
Investors appetite for riskier assets remained weak as fears mounted that the global coronavirus shutdowns could last for months, sending European shares lower for a second straight session and oil prices to their weakest in 17 years.
