The world's largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund, SPDR Gold Trust GLD, said holdings stood at 1,105.62 tonnes as of May 14, unchanged from the previous business day.

 The holdings rose 1.53 tonnes on May 13, marking the first gain since they began declining after hitting a record high on April 9 as a rise in share prices has lessened bullion's appeal.
