Gold unchanged near $1,130

FXStreet (Edinburgh) – The troy ounce of the precious metal is posting marginal losses on Monday, keeping a tight range around the $1,130 area.

Gold closes the month with gains

The yellow metal is closing the month on a positive footing after two consecutive pullbacks, managing to bounce off the $1,080 area and to retake the vicinity of $1,170 earlier in the month.

However, the likeliness of the Federal Reserve hiking rates at some point before year-end keeps limiting bullish attempts, as market participants see better value in riskier assets.
