Precious metals traded in the green after the United States Federal Reserve decided to leave interest rates unchanged. The Fed stated it will keep the target range steady at 2.25%-2.5%. It added there will be no rate cuts at least until 2020, despite US President Donald Trump's disagreement with the bank's policies.

Silver was up 0.73% and sold for $15.27 per ounce at 2:55 am CET, its highest price since April. At the same time, platinum added 0.25%, going for $814.58 per ounce, while palladium increased by 0.08% and went for $1,505.53 per ounce.
