(Kitco News) - Comex gold futures have come under moderate selling pressure in mid-morning trading Tuesday. The precious yellow metal is seeing profit-taking pressure from recent gains that saw a new record high scored Monday. The profit-taking has been prompted by a drop in crude oil prices and a firming U.S. dollar index Tuesday morning. April gold last traded down $10.00 an ounce at $1,424.40.
