Gold Lost A Bit

U.S. gold and silver futures slid on Wednesday

U.S. gold and silver futures slid on Wednesday, unlike platinum and palladium, which rose expecting the holiday-shortened trading week.

Gold futures for the February delivery fell $1.50 to $441.40 an ounce, after trading from $444.20 to $440.10 at New York Mercantile Exchange's COMEX division.

Gold tends to move in opposition to the dollar as many global investors use it an alternative to the U.S. currency.
