Gold regains poise on risk-off in equities

Gold prices are on the rise again, trading 0.70% higher on the day around $1230/Oz levels on account of the risk aversion in the Asian equities.

The metal remains at the mercy of the equity market sentiment in Europe. Stock markets in Asia retreated after a weekend meeting of G20 policymakers ended with no new coordinated action to spur global growth.

However, the upside is being capped around the hourly 100-MA at $1230/Oz as an upbeat US data released over the last week has increased odds of a Fed rate hike this year.
