Despite the gains, gold wasn’t too far from a near-six-year low of1,064.95 that it hit last week on increasing expectation that the Federal Reserve would hike American rates next month for the first time in nearly a decade. Gold tended to benefit from ultra-low American rates, which lowered the cost of holding non-yielding bullion.

Gold rose as much as 0.5% to $1 080.95 an ounce, according to Bloomberg generic pricing. The metal — which is rebounding from $1 064.55 on November 18, the lowest since February 2010 — gained 0.6% on Tuesday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said the shooting down of the plane by Turkish forces near their border with northeastern Syria would have “serious consequences.” Gold touched a five-year low last week as traders increased wagers US policymakers will raise borrowing costs next month. The chances of a December liftoff are now at 74% compared with 50% at the end of October, Fed-fund futures data show.

Holdings in gold-backed exchange traded products fell for a fifth day to 1 494.28 metric tons on Tuesday, data compiled by Bloomberg show. Assets are at the lowest since February 2009.

Gold edged down on Wednesday on a rebounding dollar and expectations of a U.S. rate hike next month, but the downside was capped by retail demand emerging on tension between Turkey and Russia.
