Gold ring price gained 0.09% to VND55.9 million per tael. A tael equals 37.5 grams or 1.2 ounces.

Spot gold was down 0.1% at $1,975.76 per ounce. U.S. gold futures fell 0.3% to $1,977.20.

The dollar index edged up 0.1%.

Calming nerves were reports that First Citizens BancShares Inc was in advanced talks to acquire Silicon Valley Bank.
