A strong dollar means gold price will depreciate as the commodity becomes dearer in other currencies, causing a fall in its demand.

NEW DELHI:

Gold

prices took a beating in futures trade in Friday’s session due to a slump in demand by jewellers at the spot market amid weak trends in overseas markets.

In the global markets, gold was on track for its first weekly decline in four weeks after posting its steepest fall in more than seven months in the previous session on a strong dollar which looked set to post its strongest gain in three weeks as investors responded positively to a bounce in US Treasury yields and as some of its rivals were hit by dovish signals from their own central banks, Reuters reported.
