Gold sags in Asia as risk trade relives

On Monday, gold edged down in Asia because risk trade relieved and market participants waited for more insight on American tax cut plans as well as related Fed policy.

December delivery gold futures dived 0.33% being worth $1,292.1841 in New York.

Meanwhile, copper futures went down 0.36% trading at $3.057 a pound.
