Jan 24 (Reuters) - Gold held steady near a four-month high on Wednesday, as the U.S. dollar sank to a fresh three-year low, while worries of potential trade wars led to some risk-aversion trade as well. Spot gold was nearly flat at $1,340.90 per ounce at 0439 GMT, while U.S. gold futures for February delivery rose 0.28 percent to $1,340.40 per ounce. "Gold could move higher as we are still in the early stages of a broader USD sell-off, with all eyes focused on 110 USD-JPY," said Stephen Innes, APAC head of trading at OANDA. The dollar touched a four-month low against the yen on simmering concerns that the U.S. currency's yield advantage will start to erode as major central banks head toward unwinding their massive stimulus.
