SINGAPORE, Apr 26 (Reuters) Gold held near New York levels on Wednesday, still consolidating after a heavy correction since last week, and was likely to trade in a $620 to $635 range, dealers said.

-- Spot gold was quoted at $631.00/632.00 an ounce, versus $630.60/631.60 late in New York on Tuesday and below a 25-year peak of $645.75 hit last week.

-- The new benchmark gold futures <0#JAU:> on the Tokyo Commodity Exchange, April, was quoted at 2,364 yen per gram. It had opened at 2,367 yen.

-- Silver was quoted at $12.77/12.87 an ounce, versus $12.54/12.64 in New York and off a 23-year peak of $14.68 hit last week.

Silver has soared as much as 67 percent this year on expectations that a new exchange-traded fund from Barclays Global Investors, under review by U.S. regulators, would give a strong lift to demand.

-- Platinum fell to $1,123/1,128 an ounce from $1,130/1,135 late in New York.
