Gold futures are under pressure on Wednesday, driven lower by stronger-than-expected economic data from China and the U.S. Rising Treasury yields are also making the U.S. Dollar a more attractive investment which is weighing on demand for dollar-denominated gold. Perhaps helping to limited losses is a mixed performance in the U.S. equity markets.

At 14:41 GMT, June Comex gold is trading $1276.30, down $0.90 or -0.08%.
