Gold futures tally a third session gain in a row

/ / News

Gold futures on Thursday climbed for a third session, buoyed by weakness in the dollar. Strength in the euro, after the European Central Bank left its policy unchanged, pressured the greenback, raising the appeal of dollar-denominated gold prices. “There is no way to predict short-term movements, but gold investors should keep some powder dry for when a buying opportunity comes along in the weeks ahead, ideally around the $1,830 level,” said Michael Armbruster, managing partner at Altavest. December gold rose $9.40, or 0.5%, to settle at $1,964.30 an ounce.
