Gold advanced to highest level in eight weeks, gaining alongside equities and other commodities, as global manufacturing improved, weakening the dollar and boosting demand for alternative investment.

Manufacturing grew from the US to India and China, fueling optimism that global recovery is weathering the debt crisis in Europe and driving a rebound in stocks and commodities including copper and oil. India and China are the world’s largest bullion consumers.

Bullion for April delivery gained 0.2 percent to $1,753 an ounce on the Comex in New York. Spot gold so called 14 day relative-strength index was at 72.15 today.
