Gold Futures End Lower
Last update: 19/05/2017

KUALA LUMPUR, May 19 (Bernama) -- Gold futures contract on Bursa Malaysia Derivatives (BMD) closed lower today as traders chose to cut long exposures as the week ended.

Meanwhile, gold benchmark at the New York Commodity Exchange's (Comex) market continued to trade higher on Friday.

Phillip Futures Sdn Bhd Dealer Leo Goh Boon Hao attributed this to traders opting for profit-taking for long positions (at BMD) as the bullion surged 1.46 per cent on weekly basis.

Meanwhile, distant month December 2017 edged down seven ticks to RM174.05 a gramme.
