Gold rose on Monday, buoyed by safe-haven demand due to uncertainty over U.S. policy ahead of President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration and amid concerns over Britain's exit from the European Union.
Spot gold had risen 0.5 percent to $1,203.15 per ounce by 0548 GMT.
U.S. gold futures were up 0.6 percent at $1,203.40 per ounce.
"Buying shows that people are looking ahead this week with Trump's inauguration and discussions on Brexit. There is a lot of uncertainty moving forward," said Brian Lan, managing director at Singapore-based gold dealer GoldSilver Central.
