Gold falls to near one-week low on dollar strength

SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Gold fell to its lowest level in nearly a week on Tuesday as a stronger dollar outweighed any safe-haven demand from lower equities and heightened tensions over Ukraine.

Palladium hovered near a 13-1/2 year high on fears that possible Western sanctions on Russia could hit supply, while silver tracked gold lower as the dollar hit a seven-month peak against the yen and held near a one-year high against the euro.

China gold exchange gains traction as yuan reforms stir interest

SINGAPORE, Aug 22 (Reuters) – China’s planned global gold

pricing power over the metal and to challenge the dominance of
London and New York in trading.
