Spot gold was down 1.7pc at $1,289.17 an ounce by 1335 GMT, while US gold futures for December delivery were down $22.30 an ounce at $1,290.40.
Silver was down 2 percent at $18.35 an ounce. Platinum was down 0.9 per cent at $995 an ounce, off an earlier three-month low of $991, while palladium was down 1 percent at $704.50 an ounce.
