Friday, 21 February 2020 09:31 WIB | PRECIOUS METALS |GOLDEMAS

Gold prices held steady at a near seven-year high on Friday as nervous investors opted for safe haven assets amid fears about the economic damage from China™s coronavirus epidemic that eclipsed Beijing™s stimulus efforts.

Spot gold was little changed at $1,619.33 per ounce by 0108 GMT. In the previous session, bullion prices had hit a seven-year high at $1,623.45.

U.S. gold futures were up 0.1% to $1,622.60.

Daegu, a city of 2.5 million people in South Korea, has become the latest victim of the virus outside China. The country now has 104 confirmed cases of the flu-like virus and reported its first death.
