Gold trades flat domestically; EU Summit eyed
Gold Futures reversed early gains and was seen trading flat on Wednesday ahead of EU meet which is scheduled for June 28 and 29. Investors remained sidelined on concerns that the European Finance Ministers may not come out with firm measures to tackle the nation's debt crisis.

Gold which used to be a hedge against economic instability has lost its safe-haven appeal in recent times due to currency volatility.

Meanwhile, International spot gold was trading above $1,568 an ounce, while on the domestic front, MCX gold futures for August delivery contract remained flat at Rs 29,937 per 10 grams.
