Rising investors' risk-aversion leads to an upward momentum for gold prices, while analysts say that investors are suggested to make prudent decisions with uncertainty outlook in the global market.

Gold prices surged to one month highs on Monday as investors continued to pile into safe-haven assets.

Recent rising gold prices has to do with the "Federal Reserve's expecting to hold rates steady in June and worries over Britain leaving the EU", said Li Yang, an analyst with Caibai Gold store, a major gold manufacturer in Beijing.

He Zhicheng, a former senior economics with Agricultural Bank of China, said, "I would suggest investors to maintain a prudent asset allocation decision and wait for more economic data to decide."

Gold futures slightly retreated on Tuesday after settling at the highest level in five weeks on Monday night's safe-asset buying.
