Gold prices eased on Wednesday, retreating from a near two-week high hit in the previous session, as the dollar gained ahead of a U.S. Federal Reserve policy decision due later in the day, reports Reuters.
Spot gold was down 0.2% to $1,952.15 per ounce by 0026 GMT, after hitting its highest since Sept. 2 at $1,971.71 on Tuesday.
U.S. gold futures fell 0.3% to $1,960.50.
The dollar index rose against its rivals, making gold more expensive for holders of other currencies.
Asian shares were set for a mixed open, although upbeat Chinese and U.S. economic data is likely to give sentiment a tailwind.
Later in the day the Fed was set to conclude its first meeting since adopting a more accommodative approach to inflation and pledging to keep interest rates low for longer.
