NEW YORK (Scrap Register): United  States gold scrap prices advanced on Wednesday in line with gold futures prices  at New York Mercantile Exchange, finding support after posting losses over the  past two trading sessions. 


The major gold scrap commodities on the Scrap  Register Price Index traded higher on Wednesday.

The countdown to a potential government  shutdown by October 1 has officially begun, with one bank saying the chances  that an agreement can be reached in time are slim. In a research note published  Wednesday, analysts at TD Securities said they see  a 55% chance that the U.S.  government will be forced to close its doors as a result of a funding gap,  reminiscent of 2013, when the government shutdown for 16 days -- the third  longest in U.S. history.
