Gold sticks to 3-week minimums in busy week

On Monday, gold hovered around the intact mark because investors looked forward to a busy week for economic reports in addition to the latest Fed policy decision.

In New York, December delivery gold futures tacked on 0.05% reaching $1.272.44 a troy ounce.

It turned to be off Friday’s intraday minimum of about $1,263.80, which is its lowest value since October 6.
