Gold is up in Asia on Monday after a pull back last week from its highest levels in more than a month. Slight weakness in the US dollar is limiting downside on the yellow metal that is holding at $1845.15 an ounce. The dollar index surged to a fresh two-decade high of 105.79 last week and is currently quoting at 104.50. Meanwhile, US treasury yields which are sharply lower near 3.2% following Federal Reserve`s massive 75 bps rate hike on Wednesday could drag down the dollar in turn favouring appeal for the safe haven commodity.
