Gold edged higher on Tuesday, snapping a three-session losing streak, on uncertainty over the economic policies of U.S. President-elect Donald Trump.
Trump has vowed to boost domestic spending, which has the potential to stoke inflation and dent demand for non-yielding bullion, but the market is seeking more detail on his policies.
Spot gold was up 0.31 percent at $1,224.60 an ounce at 3:10 p.m. EDT. The metal had slipped to its lowest since June 3 at $1,211.08 an ounce on Monday.
U.S. gold futures for December settled at $1,224.50.
"Gold will have to wait and see on when Trump moves into the White House and what policies he will cancel," Natixis precious metals analyst Bernard Dahdah said.
Trump is due to officially take power in January with promises of rolling back a major trade agreement and cutting taxes.
"There have been lots of statements of U.S. policy, but we don't have details and we don't know what it looks like. That's fertile ground for gold," aid ETF Securities commodities strategist Martin Arnold.
