Gold Rallies Modestly as U.S. Dollar Index Shows Solid Losses

Tuesday April 28, 2015 10:30 AM

(Kitco News) - Gold futures have pushed to moderately higher levels in late-morning trading Tuesday. More follow-through short covering in the futures market and bargain hunting in the cash market, following the big gains scored Monday, are featured today. The gold market got a boost when the U.S. dollar index extended its early losses to trade solidly lower on the day. There continues to be some safe-haven buying interest in the gold market amid the ongoing debt negotiations between Greece and the European Union/International Monetary Fund--which are not going well. June gold was last up $6.60 an ounce at $1,209.90.
