Gold prices on Comex extends its recovery mode in the European session, moving away from fresh three month lows reached at 1162.10 on Friday, as falling US dollar and European stocks boosts gold’s allure as an alternative higher yielding asset.
Gold heads towards $ 1177
Currently, gold trades 0.51% higher at 1174.20, having posted day’s high at 1077 and day’s low at 1168.60. Gold continues its upbeat momentum after the US dollar fell across the board on rumours that Obama believes that USD strength is a problem.
Moreover, lower European equities amid Greece concerns and a stronger Euro also lends a helping hand to the yellow metal prices.
Meanwhile, the US dollar index, measuring the relative strength of the greenback against a basket of six major currencies, trades -0.10% lower at 96.28, retreating from 96.59 session highs.
