Written by: Staff

TAIPEI, Nov 23 (Reuters) Platinum held steady on Thursday following a speculative sell-off the previous day due to liquidation ahead of a U.S. holiday, while gold hardly moved.

-- A holiday in Japan closed financial markets, keeping trade thin.

-- Platinum was at $1,145.00 an ounce by 0012 GMT, steady with levels late in New York and further from the record of $1,395 hit earlier in the week.

-- Benchmark gold futures <0#JAU:> on the Tokyo Commodity Exchange closed 11 yen per gram higher on Wednesday at 2,399 yen per gram.

-- The dollar had hit a 5-1/2-month low against the euro and a two-month low against the yen on Wednesday as thin volume added to the souring view on the currency.

By 0024 GMT, the dollar was at $1.2935 against the euro , not far from the top of its 1-1/2-year trading range of $1.2980, and 116.77 against the yen .

-- Silver was at $13.04/13.09 an ounce from $13.04/13.11 late in New York.
