London, (Business News Report)|| Gold prices have remain stable prices during trading on Tuesday, at a time when US bond yields rose to their highest levels in years.

US gold futures rose 0.5 percent to $1938.80 an ounce.

US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell indicated that the central bank will raise interest rates more than expected if necessary to reduce inflation, which has risen to very high levels, according to Reuters.
