Gold settled higher on Monday near an earlier one-month high, with a rally sparked by last week's weak U.S. jobs data running out of steam as analysts predicted the Federal Reserve will continue tapering monetary stimulus.
Prices earlier broke above tough chart resistance to hit $1,255.30, their highest since Dec. 12, as some interpreted Friday's reading of the jobs market as strengthening the case for the Fed to keep interest rates low for longer.
Gold later eased as the market digested the report, and as physical demand in China, now the world's biggest bullion consumer, dropped off after the price rally.
The Fed's quantitative easing was a key factor driving gold prices to record highs in recent years. It kept interest rates at rock bottom, cutting the opportunity cost of holding gold, while stoking inflation fears. Expectations that the scheme was coming to an end knocked prices down 28 percent last year, their biggest annual fall in 32 years.
In 2014 so far, gold has been among the best-performing metals, with strong Chinese buying ahead of the Lunar New Year and last week's surprisingly weak jobs data helping drive prices 3.4 percent higher.
