Data on Wednesday showed US consumer prices rose in December and the annual increase in inflation reached its highest level in nearly four decades, bolstering expectations that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates as early as this year, possibly in March.
Gold is considered an inflation hedge, but the metal is highly sensitive to rising US interest rates, which increase the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding gold.
In other precious metals markets, the price of silver in spot transactions increased 0.2 percent to $23.15 an ounce, and the platinum price fell 0.3 percent to $974.49 an ounce, and palladium settled at $1910.60.
