CHICAGO piumini moncler bambina scontati , Nov. 4 (Xinhua) -- Gold futures on the COMEX division of the New York Mercantile Exchange ended higher Monday as a weak U.S. dollar helped the precious metal to make its first gain in three sessions.
The most active gold contract for December delivery rose 1.5 U. S. dollars, or 0.11 percent, to settle at 1,314.7 dollars per ounce. Gold prices slipped 2.7 percent in the past two trading sessions to close Friday at their lowest level since mid-October.
Market analysts say, the buoyant U.S. stock market and comments from Richard Fisher, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas giacche moncler bambino scontati , are putting pressure on gold trading. However, the weakness in the dollar is helping gold go back to positive territory.
Fisher said on Monday he wouldn't rule out backing a tapering of the central bank's debt purchases by March, and that tapering of bond buys could come sooner than expected, according to reports.
The ICE dollar index, a gauge of the greenback's strength against six currencies, edged down to 80.606 Monday from 80.744 late Friday. The index rose nearly 2 percent last week.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- Kazakh weightlifter Nijat Rahimov smashed a world record to stun China's defending champion Lyu Xiaojun and grab Olympic gold at the men's 77kg weightlifting in Rio on Wednesday.
The 22-year-old Rahimov broke the clean and jerk world record by four kilograms to edge Lyu into the second place.
Lyu was heavily favored to win the event after he broke the snatch world record with 177kg and was well ahead of Rahimov going into the clean and jerk stage.
However the London 2012 gold medallist failed to lift 197kg on his first attempt. After Lyu succeeded with his third lift of 202kg giacche moncler uomo scontati , Rahimov hoisted 214 kg to beat a 15-year-old record and register a combined total of 379.
Lyu had the same combined total but Rahimov won by virtue of being lighter.
