Gold edged back from the previous day's near one-week high on Tuesday as European stocks surged to record highs and the dollar hit a four-month peak, with a drop in the number of new confirmed cases of coronavirus providing a glimmer of relief.
Spot gold was down 0.3% at $1,567.54 per ounce, having touched its highest since Feb. 4 at $1,576.76 on Monday. U.S. gold futures shed 0.5% to $1,571.10.
European shares hit a record high, while Asian share markets followed Wall Street higher on Tuesday as the number of new coronavirus cases slowed in China and the country’s factories slowly returned to work.
