Gold futures down a 4th straight session


Gold futures ended lower on Thursday, with prices for the precious metal down a fourth straight session. Losses for gold are “mainly due to the strength in the dollar, as expectations are that [the Federal Reserve] may adopt even more hawkish monetary policy,” Naeem Aslam, chief market analyst at AvaTrade, told MarketWatch. In testimony before the House Financial Services Committee Thursday, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said he has an “unconditional” commitment” to fight inflation. August gold GCQ22, -0.46% fell by $8.60, or 0.5%, to settle at $1,829.80 an ounce.
