NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- IAMGOLD(IAG) - Get Report  shares are diving by 6.97% to $3.41 on Monday afternoon, as gold prices retreat on the firmer dollar. 

Gold for June delivery is sliding by 2.16% to $1,266 per ounce on the COMEX this afternoon. 

The greenback was recently up by 0.6% at 86.82 against a basket of other currencies, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The precious metal was losing momentum from last week's gains when the Federal Reserve hinted that it would take its time raising short-term interest rates. 

Additionally, since gold prices have reached the highest level in around two years, this means more bearish bets may enter the market, the Journal noted.

Separately, TheStreet Ratings currently has a "Sell" rating on the stock with a letter grade of D.
