Gold Price Today: The emergence of new coronavirus variant Omicron strengthened the cause of yellow metal as the world is once again grappling with fears of a derailed global recovery.

Gold has also gained from the weakness of US Dollar as most top currencies weakened in the backdrop of the virus.
