In the international market, Gold prices on Wednesday retreated from a two-week peak scaled in the previous session as optimism on Covid-19 vaccine developments led investors to opt for riskier assets such as equities.

"The higher risk appetite seems to be gaining the upper hand again and coupled with the vaccine news, it seems to be weighing on gold prices," said Commerzbank analyst Daniel Briesemann.
