Gold falls on fears that interest rates will rise in the world’s central economies

Gold closed robustly lower on Thursday, pressured by fears that interest rates in the world’s central economies will be higher in the near future. The precious metal is particularly sensitive to the dollar and interest rates on Treasuries, which tend to strengthen in the face of an aggressive US Federal Reserve.

The most liquid precious metal contract in New York today traded at its lowest level since July 21, hitting an intraday low of $1,699.10.

Demand for the commodity slackens as the market prices a more aggressive monetary tightening by the Fed in the US, with less chance of an interest rate cut next year.
