Gold in the US futures market fell by 0.4% to $ 1220.3 an ounce.
Gold on October 26 reached record highs of $ 1243.32 an ounce, the highest since mid-July
The dollar rose to a high of 16 months, supported by a strong US economy and interest rate environment, increasing the cost of precious metals to holders of other currencies.
The increase in interest rates on gold prices also raises the untapped opportunities to purchase non-reimbursable metals.
