UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Gold prices fell on Wednesday as the dollar rallied and investors took profit-taking sales following gains of more than 1 percent in the previous session, but the uncertainty surrounding the US-China trade dispute and global growth kept the precious metal near multi-year highs.

US gold futures fell 0.2 percent to settle at $ 1,549.10 an ounce.
The dollar index rose 0.2 percent, making gold more expensive for holders of other currencies.
