Gold prices retreated in the European market on Friday to give up its highest level in a week recorded earlier in yesterday’s trading, due to the activity of corrections and profit-taking, but the decline remains limited so far due to the fall of the US dollar against a basket of global currencies.
Gold prices fell by 0.4% to $ 1,937.34, from today’s opening level of $ 1,945.31, and reached the highest level at $ 1,949.48.

Gold prices sables although USD decline
The dollar index fell on Friday by 0.2%, to resume the decline that stopped yesterday, reflecting the decline in the US currency against a basket of major and minor currencies, which is in the interest of the prices of gold and other metals denominated in the US dollar.
The current decline in dollar levels comes in light of slowing demand for the currency as the best alternative investment, especially after better than expected data on producer prices in the United States, which reduced concerns about inflation levels in the largest economy in the world.
The gold holdings of the SPDR Gold Trust, the largest global index fund backed by gold, remained unchanged yesterday, with the total continuing at 1,252.96 metric tons, which is the highest level since August 11th.
