Gold revisited 5-year low of USD 1063/Oz set earlier this month on the back of a rise in the USD index above 100.00 levels.
Prices trim losses
The metal has managed to take back part of its losses to trade around USD 1066/Oz levels. The recovery in the European stocks followed by a move higher pushed the EUR/USD below 1.06 levels and triggered a broad based USD rally. Consequently, the USD index rose above 100.00 levels.
Heading into the weekend, the prices could continue to track the movement in the USD index.
