Gold futures settled lower Monday, giving back earlier gains to extend their losses to a third session in a row, as a rise in U.S. Treasury yields weighed on the precious metal™s haven appeal, ahead of key central bank meetings this week and next.
The gold market saw œa little bit of profit-taking and consolidating around $1,500, said Jeff Wright, executive vice president of GoldMining Inc. He said no asset considered a haven performed well in Monday trade.
The market™s awaiting news from the European Central Bank, which meets Thursday, as well as from the Federal Reserve, which meets next week, he added.
December gold fell by $4.40, or 0.3%, to settle at $1,511.10 an ounce after trading as high as $1,523.80. The most-active contract fell about 0.9% last week, according to FactSet data.
Some commodity experts remain bullish and point to gold™s trade above the $1,500-an-ounce mark as the demarcation line between bullish and bearish momentum in the commodity.
