Gold Near Steady, Gets Modest Lift From U.S. ADP Jobs Number
(Kitco News) – Gold prices are steady to slightly lower in early U.S. trading Wednesday. Prices moved off the overnight lows when the U.S. ADP jobs report came in a bit lighter than expected. Still, buying interest in gold and silver is limited by the resurgent U.S. dollar index this week. December Comex gold was last down $0.20 at $1,090.40 an ounce. September Comex silver was last up $0.003 at $14.56 an ounce.
