After a summer surge.. Gold retracts as dollar stabilizes


Shafaq News / Gold pared gains today, Tuesday, after setting a new record, while the dollar compensated part of its losses.

The tension between the United States and China is betting on the Federal Reserve's confirmation of soft policies, to support gold.

Gold rose in immediate transactions 0.1% to 1943.14 dollars per ounce, by the time 0507 GMT, but without a peak, at 1980.57 dollars per ounce. The decline is due to profit-taking sales.
