Spot gold gained 0.1 percent to $1,415.19 per ounce, at 0521 GMT. 

U.S. gold futures added 0.2 percent to $1,416.60 an ounce. 

Gold tapped $1,438.63 without precedent for six years a month ago, bolstered by anticipations for a rate of interest trim by main national banks and anxiety about the worldwide economy. 

Spot gold stays flat in a tight range of $1,404-$1,421 per ounce, and a break could propose a course. 

Silver plunged 0.2 percent to $15.35 per ounce and palladium lost 0.3 percent to $1,562.99. 

Platinum gained 0.2 percent to $841.21 an ounce, floating close to a two-month maximum of $846.53 peak in the past session.
