Gold futures settle lower as US bond rises
Gold futures settled lower on Thursday as the market recouped risk appetite with the firmer US Treasury bond yield notes. However, weaker dollar and the woes over inflation and weak manufacturing data capped some losses in the yellow metal.

Gold futures for December fell by $3 or 0.8% to settle at $1781.90 an ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile. While, spot gold dipped by 0.1% to $1,780.61 per ounce.
