Gold futures drop more than 1 pct as U.S dollar strengthens

CHICAGO, June 8 (Xinhua) -- Gold futures on the COMEX division of the New York Mercantile Exchange dropped 1.06 percent on Thursday as weakness in the euro strengthened the U.S. dollar.

The most active gold contract for August delivery fell 13.7 dollars, or 1.06 percent, to settle at 1,279.5 dollars per ounce.

Strength in the U.S. dollar weighed on the precious metal as the U.S. Dollar Index went up 0.3 percent to 96.98 as of 1830 GMT.

The index is a measure of the dollar against a basket of other major currencies. Gold and the dollar typically move in opposite directions, which means if the dollar goes up, gold futures will fall.

The yellow metal failed to find support as former chief of Federal Bureau of Investigation James Comey testified before a Senate panel amid an investigation into alleged Russian efforts to interfere in last year's presidential race. Investors are also awaiting the outcome of the UK's general election.

The Comey testimony hasn't had a material effect on gold trading "as real interest rates remain the primary influence on the market right now," said Tyler Richey, an market analyst of the Sevens Report.

Traders are expecting a 99.6 percent probability of a U.S. interest rate increase in June, CME Group's website FedWatch showed.

As for other precious metals, silver for July delivery went down 20.6 cents, or 1.17 percent, to close at 17.414 dollars per ounce. Platinum for July delivery fell 9.5 dollars, or 1.00 percent, to settle at 938.1 dollars per ounce.
