NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- New York spot gold prices were bouncing back Wednesday in tandem with a rising euro.

Spot gold prices were rising $7.70, or about 0.7%, to $1,158.80 an ounce.

"A renewed rise in the euro this morning helped bullion prices recover after two days of profit-taking and indecisiveness," Kitco analyst Jon Nadler wrote in a report on Wednesday. "The gold bulls regained the upper hand."
