US Gold futures recovered from early losses as bargain hunters used a price dip as a buying opportunity Wednesday, and some aggressive shorting began to cover vs. the emerging safe-haven bid.

As of 1.21 p EDT, Aug Gold was up $14.30, or 0.93%, to 1,565.30 oz after earlier trading down to 1,532.10 on Comex division of the New York Merc earlier.

Some traders bought into the earlier price retreat, and those are not ready to be long in Gold, are likely questioning whether they want to be short.

Ultimately Gold is a safe haven play. I believe that trade will start to gain some traction at some point in here, especially the worse it gets in Europe. Stay tuned...
