Gold prices eased on Wednesday as the U.S. dollar firmed, while signs of a slowdown in the new coronavirus cases in major hot spots hurt the metal's safe-haven appeal and pushed it further away from a near one-month high hit in the previous session.
Spot gold slipped 0.2% to $1,644.99 per ounce by 00:49 GMT, having risen to its highest since March 10 on Tuesday. U.S. gold futures eased 0.7% to $1,671.30.
The dollar was up 0.2% against key rivals, making gold costlier for investors holding other currencies.
