Gold Prices Trade Higher Amid Continuing Coronavirus Worries
Gold prices traded higher on Wednesday in Asia amid continuing worries about the outbreak of coronavirus.

On Tuesday, the new virus claimed its first life in Hong Kong, while death toll across China increased to near 500.
Concerns about the economic fallout of the coronavirus outbreak were cited as tailwinds for the yellow metal today.

A Chinese government economist said earlier that the country’s first-quarter economic growth may drop to 5%.
