The demand for the precious metal slid from a sturdy from 4.6k tons to 4.4k tons by 3.85% This saw the other gold bullion traders abandon the buying spree and putting the full stop sign on the increase of gold prices.

As prices stabilized at close to 1,600 USD per troy ounce the market shifted its focus into other precious metals which gained momentum as palladium and platinum showed an increase as market sentiments rose from sleep as people started to buy gold bullion again. The silver bullion trade faculty however held steadily as neither demand nor supply showed any signs of change.
