Gold continued its decline in the week ahead of Independence Day with a strengthening dollar creating tepid demand for the bullion. While worldwide Federal Reserves are still trying to determine long term policies which will seemingly shift to be more hawkish, inflation remains at low levels, causing investors to shy away from gold and head towards high-yield investments. US economic data released Friday points to the low inflation levels and also that consumer spending increased moderately in May.  Equities are near all-time highs which is also leading investors in that direction instead of buying safe-haven gold.
