After a long run-up in price Gold is finally falling . . . a little. Don't expect that to last though with the US Dollar and Euro both weakening.
Gold prices fell more than 1 percent in Europe on Tuesday, pushing through support at $1,690 an ounce, as jitters over whether private creditors will agree to a Greek bond swap deal and wider euro zone growth pressured the euro versus the dollar. Platinum, palladium and silver were all caught up in the selling, falling more than 2 percent in gold's wake.
Spot gold was down 1.1 percent at $1,687.86 an ounce at 1141 GMT, while U.S. gold futures for April delivery were down $15.20 an ounce at $1,688.70.
