Gold price is back in green after rough ride in Europe

New York (Oct 13)  Gold prices had a rough European session despite weak China data and European stocks, but have managed to recover losses to trade in green in the early US session.

Fresh bids on the metal came-in at the hourly 50-MA then located at USD 1152.24, following which the pair broke above its hourly 100-MA and finally made its way into the positive territory. The metal currently trades around USD 1165/Oz.

Further gains are being capped as the US stocks are showing resilience to weak Chinese data and losses in the European equities.
