Gold retraces 2%+ on profit taking

Gold fell 2%+ Tuesday, retreating from a record of more than 1,900 oz, as a broad recovery of equity markets and risk-on assets took the momentum out of the Bullion rally on a technical high.

The metal retraced over 30 oz from a record 1,911.46 oz as Wall Street rallied more than 2% on better-than-expected Chinese and German economic data.

A rise in margin requirements for Gold forwards on the Shanghai Gold Exchange curbed Gold's rise a bit

Bullion is still up by nearly a 33% this year and is on track for its biggest 1-month rise since September 1999.

US gold futures for December delivery were down 37.40 at 1,854.50 oz.

Silver was down 3.5% at 42.23 oz
