As per FeNeGoSiDA, with zero improvement in the coronavirus outbreak, the international market remained steady and that is why the bullion market also remained constant in the domestic market. Meanwhile, increasing rate of unemployment in the international market is another reason for bullion price to remain as it is.

Gold prices held steady on Friday after easing from a more than one-week high as investors assessed the risks to the global economy from the coronavirus epidemic, Reuters reported.

As per the news agency, physical gold demand was tepid in most Asian hubs this week, with premiums in China sliding to their lowest level since at least July 2018, as the coronavirus epidemic bruised businesses in the world’s top bullion consumer.

In India, demand improved due to a jewellery exhibition, although near record high prices capped retail demand.
