India, Jan. 14 -- Gold futures ended lower on Monday as the increased risk appetite ahead to the interim trade deal signing between the United States and China and signs of de-escalation in the Middle East dulled safe heaven bullion investments. Besides, firmer US currency also weighed on the yellow metal investments.

Gold futures for February US gold settled down 0.6% at $1550.60 per ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile. Spot gold fell 0.8% to $1,549.50 per ounce.
