Gold outperforms in EUR terms

FXStreet (Mumbai) - Gold prices did dip into the red in USD terms, although the metal has been resilient in the EUR terms owing to a sharp fall in the EUR/USD pair.

Gold in EUR terms or XAU/EUR pair traded 0.26% higher at EUR 954.38 at the time of writing, while the XAU/USD traded 0.08% lower at 1189.90/Oz levels. Moreover, the metal has outperformed in the EUR terms due to a sharp fall in the EUR/USD pair witnessed in the last few minutes. The EUR/USD declined 0.63% to trade at 1.2461 levels.

The yellow metal is likely to be resilient in non-USD terms as the relative dovishness of the European Central Bank (ECB), Bank of Japan (BOJ) shall keep gold prices supported in terms of their respective currencies.
