Gold climbs amid calm holiday trading

Gold prices rose in European trade off four-week lows on track for the third profit in four days as the dollar index declined against major rivals. 

 

Calm trading dominates the market due to the ongoing bank holiday in the US.

Gold prices rose 0.4% to $1,846 an ounce, after losing 1% on Friday, the first loss in three days as the dollar recoups against major rivals. 

 

Gold prices lost 1.75% last week, the second weekly loss in a row, and the largest  since May. 

 

The Dollar

 

The dollar index fell 0.4% on Monday on track for the third loss in the last four sessions on active profit-taking off 20-year highs against major rivals. 

 

No analysts doubt another 0.75% rate hike by the Federal Reserve in July, in turn dampening demand on the greenback. 

 

A holiday

 

The US markets is closed for a public holiday today for the Independence Day, leading to some shortage of liquidity.
