In international markets, gold prices ticked higher today as a tepid dollar made bullion less expensive for overseas buyers, although the prospects of further interest rate hikes by the US Federal Reserve next year kept gains in check. Spot gold was up 0.1 per cent at $1,794.60 per ounce, as of 0226 GMT. US gold futures rose 0.2 per cent at $1,804.00.
