Gold prices edged down in early Asian hours on Tuesday, pressured by a slightly stronger dollar and elevated treasury yields, while traders also awaited for further cues from the minutes of the U.S. Federal Reserve's last meeting.


* Spot gold was down 0.1% at $2,015.59 per ounce, as of 0057 GMT, with trading volumes likely thinned by a U.S. holiday.

* U.S. gold futures edged 0.2% higher to $2,026.90 per ounce.

* The dollar index was up 0.1% and yields on benchmark 10-year Treasury notes were up near 4% levels, making greenback-priced bullion less affordable to overseas buyers.

* All eyes will be on the minutes from the Fed's January policy meeting, due on Wednesday, for more clues on its interest rate cut timing.

* Anglo American Platinum (Amplats) plans to cut 17% of the Anglo American unit's workforce, as it battles to keep a lid on costs after a slump in the price of platinum group metals (PGMs).
