FXStreet (Edinburgh) - The troy ounce of the precious metal continues its march higher on Tuesday, now visiting session peaks near $1,170. Gold supported around $1,150 Prices for the precious metal have left behind the initial profit-taking sentiment, which sent Gold to trade in session lows in the $1,155/50 band, and have resumed the recent upside to multi-week tops in the $1,170 neighbourhood. The recent softer tone in the greenback plus market expectations of a Fed’s lift-off now at some point during Q1 2016 has been bolstering the upside mood in the yellow metal as well as in the rest of the USD-denominated assets, prolonging the rebound from sub-$1,100 levels recorded in September.
