In the early trading session yesterday we saw the shiny metal gathering up some momentum to start heading to the upside, as it was supported by the rising oil prices to an all time high in addition the weakening US dollar; but this did not last long because later in the day after the Mr. Trichet speech in a while the US dollar began gaining once again against the Euro and the Japanese Yen; this reversal movement obligated the bullion to head to downside dropping from the recorded high of $938.50 to close $10 lower at $928.80.

While today, as we just waiting to see what might be the comment in the G7 meeting; the gold ingots continued dropping to record only a high of $928.80 and a low of $920.10 as its trading now around those levels.
