(Reuters) – Gold rose 1 percent on Thursday, supported by a pullback in the dollar and U.S. Treasury yields, as investors cautiously watched progress in talks between Russia and Ukraine.

It was up 1% at $1,948.06 an ounce at 11:21 a.m. ET (1521 GMT). The U.S. rose 2 percent to $1,947.70 an ounce.

Miguel Perez-Santalla, head of trading sales and marketing at Heraeus Metal Management in New York, said that with a weaker dollar and the situation in Ukraine still in the background, people started buying gold in large quantities.

“Gold is going to keep trying to move higher, there’s a lot of demand and a lot of worry behind it. We could go above $2,000 again,” Perez-Santalla said.

Signs of progress in talks to end Russia’s so-called “special military operation” helped global stock markets soar this week, but the Kremlin said no deal had been reached.

The dollar and U.S. Treasury yields fell a day after the Federal Reserve raised interest rates by 25 percentage points, with investors already pricing in a stronger rate hike.

While rising U.S. interest rates typically weigh on gold because they increase the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding assets, gold investors seem to pay little attention to Fed rate hikes, which are largely in response to soaring inflation.

Independent analyst Ross Norman said: “If you had to look at one thing to encourage you to believe that this bull market has taken hold, then you look at ETF (exchange-traded fund) liquidity, which is really positive. .”

Holdings in SPDR Gold Trust (P: ), the world’s largest gold-backed ETF, rose to their highest level since March 2021 at 1,070.53 tonnes.

Spot silver gained 1.6% to $25.47 an ounce, while platinum gained 0.6% to $1,024.00. Palladium rose nearly 5 percent to $2,529.13 an ounce.
