The Wednesday commodity market witnessed the yellow metal taking a nosedive in the initial session after the US President declined to talk about the stimulus package for battling COVID-19 and measures to strengthening the weakening dollar prices.
Gold futures slipped to $1,886.45, that is 1.17 per cent down at 3:44 AM GMT. Notably, it had hit a one-week low in the last session.

Reportedly, after a record number of cases, new restrictions have been imposed in six states of the US.
