SINGAPORE, Dec 30 (Reuters) - Spot gold hovered near its
three-week high and silver geared towards a 30-year peak on
Thursday, buoyed by a slightly weaker dollar, while investors
continued to bet on further price rally in precious metals.


* Spot gold edged up 0.2 percent to $1,413.58 an
ounce by 0033 GMT, near a three-week high of $1,413.95 reached
on Wednesday.

* U.S. gold futures were nearly flat at $1,413.5.

* The dollar edged lower against a basket of currencies,
after declining to a seven-week low against the yen and
dropping versus the euro on Wednesday.

* Holdings in SPDR Gold Trust , the world's largest
gold-backed exchange-traded fund, remained unchanged at
1,284.062 tonnes.

* Spot silver edged up 0.2 percent to $30.62 an
ounce, just below the 30-year high of $30.68 hit on Dec 7.

* U.S. silver futures inched down 0.2 percent to
$30.65 an ounce.

* The S&P 500 headed for its best December in nearly two
decades as U.S. stocks advanced in thin trade on Wednesday,
lifted by investor optimism about the economy in 2011.
* U.S. Treasuries debt prices should stay firm into
year-end, following a strong seven-year note auction on
Wednesday, as investors square books ahead of year-end and
prepare for Federal Reserve purchases next week.
