Gold ends the day down but off session lows

Gold prices managed to trim most of its intraday losses but closed the day down, as fears of a Brexit eased, weighing on the yellow metal.

Gold closes the day around $1,289 an ounce, down 0.69% on the day, but having recovered from lows at the $1,278 zone. 

Investors, however, are being reluctant to unwind their long positions in gold, as uncertainty over the outcome of the referendum prevails, with the "leave" and the "remain" now neck to neck.
