MTECHTIPS:- Gold Prices Gain On Safe-Haven Demand Amid Trade War Fears

MTECHTIPS-Gold prices gained on Friday after reports that the U.S. is planning to slap another $100 billion tariffs on China. Gold futures for June delivery on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange gained $2.90, or 0.20%, to $1,331.2 a troy ounce by 1:15 AM ET (05:15 GMT). Trump ordered trade representative Robert Highlighter to consider additional tariffs on $100 billion of Chinese imports, escalating the trade conflicts between the world’s two largest economies.

The U.S. dollar index that tracks the greenback against a basket of six major currencies last stood at 90.03, down 0.10%, testing the 90 level.
