imagesGold prices have fallen to the lowest level in 10 weeks, as investors ignore tensions in Ukraine to focus on an improving US economy and falling Chinese demand for the precious metal. Gold for June delivery, the most actively traded contract, on Tuesday fell $US7.40, or 0.6 per cent, to $US1,281.10 a troy ounce, the lowest settlement since February 10, on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange. Prices had been buoyed for much of April by investors seeking a haven from the upheaval in Eastern Europe, where Russia is encroaching on Ukraine. US Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday warned Russia it would face additional economic sanctions if it doesn’t withdraw its forces from Ukraine’s border, news that some analysts had thought would spur more gold purchases. But instead, gold ended lower for a third straight session, putting prices at the level they were before the Ukrainian crisis ignited.
