Gold prices pull back after a 12-month high

Gold prices went lower from their highest level in a year recorded in the previous session; the pullback was a result of a weaker dollar and lower expectations of a tighter policy by the Federal Reserve.

Gold dropped by $12 in the session and was being traded at $1,334 after reaching $1,349.29 on Friday’s session, which was the highest level since August 2016.

The retreat in gold prices represents a test of sentiment toward the metal ahead of the U.S. inflation data for the month of September.
