Spot gold was little changed at $1,892.80 per ounce by 0053 GMT, after declining 1.6% in the previous session.
U.S. gold futures were steady at $1,896.60.
The dollar index was steady after bouncing off a three-week low on Tuesday.
Silver rose 0.2% to $24.22 per ounce, platinum was up 0.5% at $869.05, and palladium gained 0.6% to $2,329.97.
