Gold advanced in New York as the weakening dollar increase the attractiveness of the precious metal as a hedge against inflation.

A change in gold prices depends on the dollar. The head dealer at Integrated Brokerage Services LLC in Chicago predicts that we “are going to see continued erosion in the dollar.” This situation is very bullish on gold.
