International gold prices extended gains on Wednesday morning and early afternoon trade, with the greenback and the US 10-year yield continuing their overnight weakness, which is likely to keep gold buoyed.
Meanwhile, the House of Representatives voted Tuesday night to approve a resolution calling for President Donald Trump to be removed from office through the 25th Amendment in the wake of the violent siege of the US Capitol last week and weighed down on the dollar as well and lifted sentiments.
Further, the US stimulus optimism and surging coronavirus cases in the US, Japan and China also boosts gold's safe-haven appeal.
Investors will look to cues from the U.S. CPI report.
Markets will also pay close attention to the Fed speeches and the speech from ECB President Lagarde tonight.
