Gold prices fell on Wednesday as the dollar climbed higher amid expectations of aggressive policy tightening by the Federal Reserve.

A weak Euro following the Russian gas-halt to Poland Bulgaria contributed as well to the dollar’s sharp uptick.

The dollar index scaled a fresh 25-month high, rising to 103.28 in late morning trades today, before paring some gains and dropping to 102.85, still up with a fairly solid gain of 0.54%.

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.
