December delivery gold futures inched up 0.29% being worth $1,280.96 a troy ounce.

Overnight, the Fed kept American interest rates intact. As market experts stress, another rate lift is probable next month.   

Overnight, gold managed to shrug off a rebound in the evergreen buck because investors kept expecting the Fed’s policy statement to unveil that Fed policymakers voted to leave rates intact at their October 31-November 1 gathering.
