Gold prices snap 2-session win streak as U.S. dollar halts skid Gold prices settled sharply lower Wednesday, ending a two-day string of gains, as the U.S. dollar halted its skid and as commodity investors watched for minutes from the Federal Reserve's July policy meeting, which could provide further insights on the central banker's outlook for the U.S. and global business. December gold finished down $42.80, or 2.1%, to end at $1,970.30. The dip for gold comes as the dollar popped off a two-year low. A measure of the buck, the ICE U.S. Dollar Index , which gauges the dollar against six currency pairs, including the euro and the British pound , was up 0.5% at 92.714. Weakness in the dollar can raise the appeal of commodities priced in the currency to overseas buyers. The Fed's meeting minutes are released at 2 p.m., about a half-hour after the settlement for metal's on Comex.

Gold notches back-to-back gains to settle above $2,000 for the first time in about weekGold prices extend rally Tuesday, with the precious metal regaining traction to settle above the psychologically significant level at $2,000 for the first time in about a week amid persistent weakness in the U.S. dollar and slack in government bond yields. December gold settled up $14.40, or 0.7%, at $2,013.10 an ounce. The 10-year Treasury note yield was trading around 0.66%, around its weakest level since last week, while the dollar was at its lowest since 2018, trading 0.6% lower at 92.29, as gauged by a gauge of the buck, the ICE Dollar Index , against a half-dozen rival currencies. A weaker dollar can boost the appeal of gold because it is priced in the currency while receding yields can lower the opportunity cost of favoring bullion, which doesn't offer a yield, over Treasurys.
