Gold futures fall for a third session in a row

Gold futures declined on Thursday to tally a third loss in a row, pressured in part by strength in the U.S. dollar. The benchmark ICE U.S. Dollar Index touched a nine-month high and some upbeat U.S. economic data, including a rise in the leading economic index in July, helped to dull demand for haven gold. December gold fell by $1.30, or nearly 0.1%, to settle at $1,783.10 an ounce. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
