    A goldsmith displays gold chains in his jewellery shop at the Old Bazaar Goldsmith street in Skopje July 20, 2011. Gold rose on Wednesday after the previous session's drop from record highs, as investors focused on economic uncertainty despite progress in talks on raising the U.S. debt limit and ahead of a euro zone summit aimed at resolving the region's debt crisis. Gold is about 1 percent below its record high of $1,609.51 a day after the metal snapped an 11-day winning streak, the longest in four decades, as safe-haven demand faded after President Barack Obama supported a bipartisan proposal for a new deficit-reduction plan to avert a U.S. default.
