Gold trims overnight gains as S&P 500 futures regain poise
Consequently, traditional safe-haven assets like gold found takers. However, the flight to safety seems to have stalled in Asia, courtesy of the positive action in the S&P 500 futures. Also, the Asian stocks are flashing red, but losses are moderate. For instance, China’s Shanghai Composite is down 0.6 percent and South Korea’s Kospi has shed 0.47 percent.
That said, the yellow metal may revisit the $1,345 and could possibly break higher if the S&P 500 futures surrender gains and drop into the red.
