Gold Futures Fall Most in a Week on Bets Dollar to Extend Rally

Gold fell the most in a week on speculation that the dollar will extend a rally, eroding demand for the precious metal as an alternative asset.

The greenback rose against the euro and the yen as U.S. economic data pointed to a recovering economy with a low inflation rate. The U.S. consumer-price index increased 0.1 percent in November. Gold has gained 26 percent this year, reaching a record $1,432.50 an ounce on Dec. 7.
