Gold futures posted a modest gain on Tuesday to mark another settlement at their highest in over two weeks, a day ahead of the Federal Reserve’s decision on interest rates. “A hawkish decision would be decidedly bearish for gold…while a dovish surprise would support a run beyond $2,000” for gold, said analysts at Sevens Report Research, in Tuesday’s newsletter. December gold GCZ23 climbed by 30 cents, or less than 0.1%, to settle at $1,953.70 an ounce on Comex.
