Saigon Jewelry Company gold bar price gained 0.38% to VND78.45 million ($3,198.12) per tael Wednesday morning.

Gold ring price went up 0.08% to VND64.55 million per tael. A tael equals 37.5 grams or 1.2 ounces.

Globally gold price rose 0.31% to $2,030.74 per ounce Wednesday, its fifth gaining day in a row.

News of China lowering interest rates sponsored gold’s leg-up alongside a drop in U.S. Treasury bond yields, according to FXStreet.
