Kitco analyst Jon Nadler cited Resource Capital Research as saying that "we are moderately bearish on the outlook for gold in the medium-term because we consider that the current uptrend for the U.S. dollar could continue, particularly when taking into account the status of most of the currencies the greenback is measured against... we consider that gold's supply-demand fundamentals also tip the balance towards further gold price weakening." Spot gold prices have risen $4.90, or about 0.4%, to $1,135.70 an ounce.
