NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Eldorado Gold Corp. (EGO) - Get Eldorado Gold Corporation Report stock is decreasing 0.82% to $3.03 in afternoon trading on Monday after gold prices were pressured by a stronger dollar.

Gold for June delivery is down 0.12% to $1,220.10 per ounce on the COMEX this afternoon.

The dollar gained after comments from the Fed boosted expectations for an interest rate hike in April, Reuters reports.

Higher interest rates would support the dollar, making dollar-denominated commodities, such as gold, more expensive to hold abroad.

"While we have stated that Fed tightening may not be as negative for gold as in previous tightening cycles, an April rate rise would likely knock gold lower near term," HSBC analysts said, according to Reuters.
