June 27, 2013 - Gold slipped below $1,200 a troy ounce on Thursday, one week after comments by the US Federal Reserve Board sent the price downward. The precious metal closed, however, at $1,211.60.

On June 20 Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said that the Fed would slow its assertive pace of buying bonds if economic forecasts prove to be correct. The recent level of bond purchases by the Fed has pumped money into the economy.

Gold that day fell below the $1,300 level that it had been enjoying, hitting a two-and-a-half year low. Now, one week later, is now at a 34-month low.
