Metals Stocks: Gold prices ease back from a more than 3-month high

Gold futures finished lower Wednesday, as strength in the U.S. dollar helped prices give up a portion of the gains from a day earlier that had lifted prices to a three-month high.

December gold GCZ8, -0.11% fell by $5.70, or 0.5%, to settle at $1,231.10 an ounce. It climbed Tuesday by 1%, to close at $1,236.80 an ounce—the highest for a most-active contract since July 16, according to FactSet data.

December silver SIZ8, -0.70% shed 11.7 cents, or 0.8%, to finish at $14.676 an ounce.
