Gold hovers near 9-week low
Gold steadied near a nineweek low on Tuesday as investors assessed potential policy impact from the neckand-neck US presidential election, while a strike in Greece to protest austerity cuts also kept sentiment cautious.
Spot gold rose 0.36 percent to $1,690.30 by 1127 GMT, but stayed close to Monday's nineweek low of $1,672.24. US gold futures for December rose $6.00 to $1,689.20.
Prices slid more than 2 percent on Friday after stronger than expected US jobs data lifted the dollar.
