Open interest in Gold futures markets increased for yet another session on Thursday, this time by nearly 2.4K contracts, according to advanced readings from CME Group. Volume, instead, extended the choppy activity and shrunk by around 92.7K contracts.

Prices of the ounce troy of the precious metal abandoned the area of recent multi-year peaks near $1,780 (June 24).
