December delivery gold futures rallied 0.33% hitting $1,337.04 a troy ounce in New York.

Overnight, the number one commodity declined below break-even. It’s because easing US-North Korea tensions powered demand for riskier assets bringing global equities to record maximums for a second straight day.

Also suppressing gold prices was a steep surge in American treasury yields ahead of inflation reports due on Wednesday that could impact the Fed’s interest rate verdict slated for September 20.
