US gold prices jumped nearly 2 per cent on Friday, driven by a slide in US Treasury yields and broader financial markets as worries over a fallout in the banking sector eclipsed a strong US jobs report and drove safe-haven flows into bullion.
Spot gold was up 1.8 per cent at $1,863.46 per ounce by 2:26 p.m. ET (1926 GMT), its highest since Feb. 14. US gold futures also rose 1.8 per cent to settle at $1,867.20 per ounce.
