Gold Marks Longest Losing Streak Since September

Gold ended lower on Tuesday, as it remained weighed down by recent hints from the U.S. Federal Reserve that an interest-rate increase could come yet this year. December gold ended $21.80, or 1.9%, lower at $1,114.10 an ounce. The four consecutive sessions of declines for the yellow metal mark its longest losing streak since Sept. 25, when the metal posted five straight sessions of losses.
