Gold futures fell Thursday to post their third losing session in a row
Gold futures fell Thursday to post their third losing session in a row, but prospects for higher demand lifted silver and copper prices to new heights.
"Gold continues to be the weakest link among the major metals and remains trapped in a broad trading range of $535-$570," said Peter Grandich, editor of the Grandich Letter.
Gold for April delivery settled down 90 cents at $550.80 an ounce on the New York Mercantile Exchange. It touched a low of $544.80 earlier, its weakest level since March 14.
