Gold futures hit 2-week high as signs of physical buying

Gold futures prices inched up to hit a two-week high on Monday, as investors weighed the dollar’s advance against signs of more physical buying.

Greenback advanced near a maximum of five years after a report showed Japan’s economy suddenly dropped in a recession. Physical buying will probably support gold prices to November, Barclays Plc, wrote in a report today.

Investors looked ahead to introduce the US data later in the day for more information on the economic strength and the future course of monetary policy.

Despite recent advances, prices of gold will probably remain vulnerable in the short term amid signs of the US economic recovery building force the Federal Reserve to start raising interest rates sooner and faster than previously thought.

Holdings in gold-backed exchange-traded products fell 0.7 metric ton to 1,617.4 tons on Nov. 14, the lowest since May 2009, data compiled by Bloomberg show.
