Gold rose for the third straight day on Thursday as the euro regained strength against the U.S. dollar and tensions between Ukraine and Russia burnished the metal’s safe haven appeal.
Gold added $1.46 an ounce to $1,283.91 by 0026 GMT, moving away from a two-month low of $1,273.06 hit on Aug. 21. U.S. gold was at $1,285.00 an ounce, up $1.60.
