Spot gold facilitated by 0.1 percent to $1,491.72 per ounce starting at 0537 GMT, following shedding almost 1 percent during the past session. U.S. gold futures tumbled 0.1 percent to $1,494 an ounce.

Among other metals, palladium tumbled 0.1 percent to $1,798.18 an ounce, not a long way from a record peak of $1,808.81 hit during the last session, as supply concerns keep boosting the autocatalyst metal's allure.
