The gold market by the dollar remains dominated.

The United States Department of Commerce, said the number of permits of construction last month rose 11.8% to 1.275 million units, the most since August 2007. Analysts had been expecting with construction permits falling by 3, 5% to 1.100 million units in May, total of 1.140 million in April.

The report also showed that housing starts in the United States tumbled 11.1% in May to 1.036 million total units of 1,165,000 units, worse than the expectations of a decline of 3.1% to 1.100 million in April.
