Spot gold had been down 0.1 per cent to $1,285.41 an ounce, close to its lowest since Jan 25 at $1,280.70 hit in the previous session. US gold futures had been up about 0.2pc at $1,286.80.
“The recovery of the US dollar is a negative element and the general risk-on sentiment is not particularly good for gold,” ActivTrades chief analyst Carlo Alberto De Casa had said. “The main (equity) market driver has been the optimism surrounding trade talks between the US and China.”
The dollar had hovered near a two-week high hit in the previous session, making gold more expensive for holders of other currencies.
