Gold tends to benefit from a lower interest rates environment and a broadly weaker greenback.The Fed is expected to sit tight on its interest rates decision, when officials announce their verdict on Wednesday.Gold Technical Levels                                    The metal has an immediate resistance at 1287.23 (4-week high) and 1300 (round number).
