Spot gold was up 0.2% at $1,296.08 an ounce as of 4.03am GMT, while USA gold futures rose 0.4% to $1,295.90 an ounce.

"We have seen that play out again now", Cooper added.

The weak United States inflation data suggests that policy makers may hold back from additional rate increase, ANZ analysts said in a research note.
