Gold Futures Down 10 Sessions In a Row

By Myra P. SaefongMarketWatch Pulse

Gold futures settled lower on Wednesday for a 10th session in a row, settling at their lowest level since March 2010. Prices have continued to plunge following a decline in demand as an investment haven and on strength in the dollar. August gold shed $12, or 1.1%, to settle at $1,091.50 an ounce for the Comex session. That was the lowest settlement for a most-active contract since March 24, 2010.
