Gold prices were trading marginally higher in Thursday morning trade with the US gold futures trading 0.1% up. The marginal gain was on the back of a weak dollar, which boosted investors’ appetite for greenback-denominated commodities.
However, the rally was capped by fears that the US Federal Reserve may vote for a rise in interest rates soon.

The fear arose after New York Fed President John Williams, on Tuesday, said that the central bank should expect to continue raising interest rates “over the next year or so” even while it pays close attention to possible risks highlighted by financial markets, media reports showed.
