Spot gold fell more than 4 percent on Wednesday, falling further from the previous session's record high as a sharp rise in U.S. durable goods orders prompted more profit-taking ahead of a Federal Reserve gathering this week.

Bullion fell 3.9 percent to $1,758.49 an ounce by 1:35 p.m. EDT, having hit a one-week low of $1,752.59. It was now more than $150 below a record $1,911.46 an ounce hit on Tuesday.
