Gold's sharp gains on uncertainty over Britain's European Union membership are likely to come to an end, regardless of whether Britons vote to leave or remain in Thursday's referendum.An "In" vote is seen as quickly unwinding gold's 5 percent gain in June, as appetite for risk rises and focus returns to the U.S. economy, analysts and fund managers say.Gold fell to a near 14-month low in September 2008, at the height of the 2008-09 financial crisis, and was for a short time positively correlated with riskier assets, as liquidity dried up.While a "Brexit" vote might not be as disruptive as the 2008-09 U.S. subprime crisis, currency swings would impact gold and investor sentiment could be hurt by uncertainty.
