PreciousMetalsRecap Gold Slips on U.S. Dollar Rally[1]A strengthening U.S. dollar pushed gold modestly lower in Tuesday trading. The dollar climbed against other currencies as the U.S. Federal Reserve kicked off its two-day Federal Open Markets Committee meeting.

Economists expect the Fed to delay any reduction in its monthly bond-buying until next year due to a flurry of recent reports showing continued weakness in U.S. hiring and economic growth.

Gold futures for December delivery sank 0.5% to $1,345.50 per ounce on Tuesday, according to CME Group[2]. Gold traded as high as $1,360.40 and as low as $1,339.80. Bullion closed in London at $1,349, according to BullionVault[3].

Silver futures for December moved down 0.2% to $22.49 per ounce. Tuesday’s high for silver was $22.63, while the low was $22.30.

Metal funds were mostly lower in Tuesday trading.

Mining ETFs sank during the day.
