Gold prices were little-changed in early in European trading after the bullion touched a five-month high in Asia as investors piled into safe-haven assets around the world amid rising geopolitical tensions.
Spot gold was marked 0.01% lower at $1,274.30 per ounce in early London trading after reaching a five-month high of $1,279.80 in Asia dealing amid a retreat from risk assets such as stocks and corporate bonds.
Gold mining stocks were also lower, with Randgold Resources (GOLD) falling around 1.5% and Fresnillo Plc (FNLPF) slipping 0.85%. Randgold’s 10.66% advance over the past three months, however, has nearly doubled that of spot gold prices while Fresnillo’s 15.82% rise is nearly three times higher than the bullion’s gain over the same period.
