Gold price hits record high


Gold prices rose to a record high on Monday, as a softer US inflation reading cemented bets that the Federal Reserve would deliver its first interest rate cut of the year in June.

Spot gold was up 1.2 per cent at $2,256,69 per ounce, as of 12.45 UAE time, after hitting an all-time high of $2,265.49 earlier in the session. US gold futures gained 1.8% to $2,279.10.

Spot silver rose 1.34% to $25.25 per ounce, platinum was up 0.53% at $916.08 and palladium climbed 0.7% to $1,021.77.
