Gold Retreat as Dollar Holds Advance Before ECB Policy Meeting

Gold retreated as the dollar traded near a five-year high before a European Central Bank meeting today that may give indications on further stimulus.

The Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index was little changed before data due tomorrow that™s forecast to show U.S. jobs growth and amid speculation ECB policy makers will signal more stimulus. President Mario Draghi said last month they are open to buying a wide variety of assets.

The greenback has strengthened as the Federal Reserve considers raising borrowing costs while other central banks take steps to spur growth. A stronger dollar and higher U.S. interest rates reduce gold™s allure because the metal generally offers investors returns only through price gains.

Gold for February delivery fell 0.5 percent to $1,202.20 an ounce by 7:18 a.m. on the Comex in New York. Bullion for immediate delivery declined 0.6 percent to $1,202.25 in London, according to Bloomberg generic pricing.
