Gold prices steadied on Today, with holding at $1,982.84 per ounce and U.S. experiencing a minor decline of 0.2 percent to stand at $1,991.35. The stabilization comes as market participants eagerly anticipate key monetary policy announcements from the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England.

They are particularly keen on insights from Fed Chair Jerome Powell regarding possible adjustments to interest rates.
