Gold futures for June ended down by $15.40 or about 0.8% at $1,888.70 an ounce, after having snapped a five-day losing streak on Tuesday.

Silver futures for July ended lower by $0.085 at $23.505 an ounce, while Copper futures for July settled at $4.4750 per pound, up $0.0110 from the previous close.
