Eldorado Gold (EGO) Stock Climbs as Gold Prices Rise

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Eldorado Gold (EGO) were advancing mid-Tuesday afternoon as gold prices climbed.

Gold for December delivery was up 0.54% to $1,354.80 per ounce on the COMEX.

Gold was gaining today on a weaker dollar and a decline in the U.S. stock market.

A weaker dollar makes gold, which is priced in the greenback, cheaper and therefore more attractive to foreign investors.

The commodity metal rose despite comments from William Dudley, President of the New York Federal Reserve, saying that an interest-rate hike is fast approaching and that rates could increase as soon as September, MarketWatch reports.

Eldorado Gold, based in Vancouver, is a mine operating company.
