There are concerns over growth, disappointing earnings reports and another possible U.S. government shutdown in the wake of President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address. Reflecting lacklustre sentiment, holdings of SPDR Gold Trust, the world’s largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund, fell for a fourth straight session.

The U.S. Commerce Department's Bureau of Economic Analysis said it would publish its advance fourth-quarter gross domestic product report on Feb. 28. The release of the report was initially scheduled for Jan. 30, but was delayed because of the 35-day partial shutdown of the federal government that ended on Jan. 25.

The report will include some of the data that would normally go into the second GDP estimate, the Bureau of Economic Analysis said. Liquidity in gold markets is expected to remain light with China closed for the Lunar New Year holiday this week.
