was down 0.3 percent at $1,203 an ounce, having dropped by nearly 1 percent to a session low of $1,194.90 as the dollar hovered around 11-year highs, helped by rising Treasury yields.
"Prices ... seem to be forming a nice technical base in the low $1,190s," Deutsche Boerse's MNI senior analyst Tony Walters said.
"Gold ... clearly found some support around $1,200 at the start of this month and people are still looking at U.S. data," NRC Commodities analyst Andrey Kryuchenkov said.

Expectations for an increase in U.S. interest rates were likely to limit bullion's gains in the short term, keeping it below Monday's two-week high of $1,223.20.

Seven of the Fed's 17 members have said they at least want the option of a rate rise in June on the table, or have pushed in general for an earlier increase in the expectation that wages and inflation will turn higher.
Structural reforms in China, aimed at a more sustainable pace of economic growth, would also keep gold demand in check, To said.
Most analysts expect China's gold imports via main conduit Hong Kong to recover this year but to stay below the record 1,158.16 tons imported in 2013.
