    Gold holds above 1090 levels

    Currently, gold rises 0.18% to 1093.90, recovering from fresh session lows struck at 1092.20 in the last hours. Gold prices drifts lower on the back of rising concerns over the Chinese demand for the bullion, after the local stock markets turmoil refuelled slowdown concerns in the world’s largest gold consumer.

    Moreover, a solid comeback staged by the US dollar against its major competitors also capped the gains in the gold prices. The US dollar index now trades 0.07% higher at 99.33, recovering from a dip to 99 handle.

    However, the prices remain supported on the back of the free-fall seen in the European stocks, after the European indices joined the global sell-off.
