Gold rose on Thursday after a coordinated effort by central banks to stabilize the dollar, consolidating bullion’s biggest-ever one-day rise the previous day and ensuring its status as a safe-haven asset was intact.

The Federal Reserve and the world’s top central banks offered to pump billions of dollars into global money markets on Thursday in a coordinated effort to ease a funding squeeze triggered by the upheaval on Wall Street.

“Doubts stay over the dollar after the central banks’ move,” said Tatsuo Kageyama, analyst at Tokyo-based Kanetsu Asset Management Co.

“The question — who’s going to be the next — is still hanging over. Even if the dollar rose, people would think that is just a temporary rise,” he said.
