The yellow metal has lost almost more than 3.5% from the minor top of $1283.50.The minor jump in gold was mainly due to short covering and slight weakness in USD. US Dollar index has shown a huge selling after hitting 11 month high of 95.51. The index declined almost 100 pips from the high. USDJPY is trading slightly higher after 70 pips decline yesterday. It is currently trading around 110.11. The yellow metal is currently trading around $1270.
