Gold futures suffer second straight session decline

/ / News

Gold futures declined on Tuesday for a second session in a row, with prices for the most-active contract settling at their lowest since July 24, according to FactSet data. Progress toward a COVID-19 vaccine, soaring U.S. new-home sales, and signs of easing U.S.-China trade tensions have contributed to the fall in gold prices, said Chintan Karnani, chief market analyst at Insignia Consultants. December gold fell $16.10, or 0.8%, to settle at $1,923.10 an ounce.
