Spot gold lost half a percent to trade at $1,760 on Thursday

Spot gold lost half a percent to trade at $1,760 on Thursday, although prices gained nearly 3 percent so far this month and pierced through $1,800 earlier this week -- a level unseen since late September.ealers reported a mix of light buying and selling, and said many buyers were waiting for further price dips to enter the market.

"People are hoping to see a correction to $1,700 after the recent rally so that they can buy more," said a Hong Kong-based bullion dealer. "They are still interested in holding gold as a safe haven."

Buying from India, the world's largest gold consumer, eased after the key gold-buying festivals in the last week of October, but the ongoing wedding season is likely to support gold demand.The weak Indian currency helped push rupee-priced gold to its record high on Wednesday, depressing gold purchases, as dollar-priced bullion was 8 percent lower than its all-time high above $1,920.
