Gold futures end lower Thursday as yields pop higher, U.S. stocks rallyGold futures closed slightly lower Thursday, quashing bullion's attempt to deliver its first back-to-back gain since mid July, as Treasury yields climbed but still hung near lows not seen since mid to early February. The 10-year Treasury note was yielding around 1.20% Thursday afternoon after hitting its lowest intraday level since Feb. 10 at 1.1255%, a day earlier. December gold settled $5.60, or 0.3%, lower at $1,808.90 an ounce, after closing up less than 0.1% on Wednesday. The decline for gold also comes as the Dow Jones Industrial Average , the S&P 500 index and the Nasdaq Composite Index were rallying, trading at or near record highs and underscoring a weaker appetite on the session for assets perceived as havens like gold and bonds. The rise in Treasury yields can also undercut the appeal of gold compared against precious metals that don't offer a coupon.
