Spot Gold in Asia was seen trading down by 2% or $40 per ounce from yesterday at US $1,758.52 an ounce.

But this trend can be for a short-term as situation in developed nations appears still grim.

Over in euro zone, three out of seventeen European nations i.e. Greece, Portugal and Ireland already require bailouts due to their deteriorating financial health.

After these three European countries, Italy is emerged as the new centre of concern in the euro zone debt crisis as its borrowing cost breached 7% putting the country at the brink of debt crisis.
