On Wednesday, US B1 bombers are expected to fly over the Korean peninsula as part of a scheduled military exercises to withstand Pyongyang. The week-long drills burst out just a week after North Korea dared to test what it labeled as the most advanced ICBM and also warned that the exercises would get the Korean peninsula closer to the fierce nuclear war.

Overnight, gold dived to six-week minimums because the greenback kept strengthening on the back of recent investor optimism as for the anticipated tax reform.

Gold declined because bullish sentiment in risk markets was strengthening amid rallying investor hopes that the Senate as well as House of Representatives will have their respective bills reconciled, thus ensuring that the final bill will come to Donald Trump for the official approval before year-end.
