Close

Market analysts said the fall in gold futures is mostly attributed to trimming of positions by speculators, tracking a weak trend overseas on concern that the Federal Reserve may raise interest rates as soon as June after the possibility was flagged in the minutes of its meeting last month.


Meanwhile, gold traded 0.21 percent down at USD 1,255.30 an ounce, its lowest levels in three weeks in Singapore today.
