    Benchmark US 10-year Treasury yields were up for a second straight session, limiting demand for non-interest bearing gold.

    Gold prices on Monday rose above the more-than-three-month low level hit in the previous session, as a weaker dollar outweighed pressure from higher US Treasury yields.

    * US consumer sentiment slumped to its lowest level in nearly 11 years in early May as worries about inflation persisted, but household spending remains underpinned by a strong labour market and massive savings, which should keep the economy expanding.
    * Spot silver was up 0.5 percent at $21.17 per ounce, platinum gained 1.3 percent to $950.84, and palladium rose 0.7 percent to $1,957.88.
