FXStreet (Córdoba) - Gold settled slightly higher on Wednesday having had a volatile session as investors gear up for the Federal Reserve meeting next week. The yellow metal climbed to near $1,085 an ounce but it was rejected, as selling interest remains strong on spikes. The metal settled up 0.12% around $1,076.50 an ounce. Still, gold continues to trade near 6-year lows scored last week at $1,045/oz as the dollar retains a firm tone amid expectations the Fed will raise rates for firts time in over a decade.

The commodity has fallen briefly below the 1,070 level, but failed to extend its slide, establishing a daily low at 1,069.60, the level to break to confirm a bearish move for this Thursday”.
