Gold fell on Thursday, shrugging off weaker European equity markets as a rebound in oil prices from 12-year lows and strong performance on Wall Street pointed to a recovery in risk appetite, blunting bullion's appeal as a haven.
Spot gold was down 1.57 percent at $1,075.86 an ounce.
Gold futures for February delivery settled lower at $1073.60, down $13.50. They were last trading down $11.20 at $1,075.90.
The metal hit two-month highs at $1,112 last week as volatility in Chinese stocks battered appetite for risk, but trading has since been choppy. Stocks fell further in Europe on Thursday, but Wall Street opened higher, maintaining strong performance in the afternoon.
