Gold futures ended lower on Monday, easing back after posting a gain last week, but prices remained above the key $1,800 mark. At the Jackson Hole central-bankers symposium on Friday, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome "Powell's inaction on tapering means gold has retracted all of August's previous 7% plunge," but silver prices trade lower month to date, said Adrian Ash, director of research at BullionVault. "That could be an early indication that the post-COVID reflation is running out of juice, because it means the market currently sees the industrial outlook weakening versus the need for a safe haven." December gold /zigman2/quotes/210039437/delayed GCZ21 -1.04% fell $7.30, or 0.4%, to settle at $1,812.20 an ounce.
