Gold Futures Surged Above$442

U.S. gold rose and closed above $442 per ounce Wednesday

U.S. gold rose and closed above $442 per ounce Wednesday amid weaker US dollar.

February gold futures at the New York Mercantile Exchange's COMEX division closed at $442.20 per ounce Thursday, up $4.90, after trading from $436.70 to $443.20.

Dealers said an absence of the fund long liquidation and trader profit-taking of last week as the end of the year approaches caused this soar of the precious metals.
