With demand for bullion restrained amid aggressive monetary policies and rising US bond yields, gold was little changed on Wednesday as it failed to make the most of a weaker dollar.
Although gold is considered a hedge against inflation, higher interest rates and bond yields increase the opportunity cost of holding bullion, which pays no interest.
