NEW YORK (Scrap Register): United  States gold scrap prices advanced on Wednesday, while gold futures prices at New  York Mercantile Exchange settled higher as the U.S. dollar retreated.

The 9ct hallmarked gold scrap prices rose to $393.214 an ounce and  14ct hallmarked gold scrap prices advanced to $613.413 an ounce.

Gold futures prices at New York  Mercantile Exchange settled higher amid a sharply weaker dollar. The precious  metal still remains near six-year lows from last week, as commodity traders  brace for a likely rate hike from the Federal Open Market Committee at its  two-day meeting on December 15-16.

Gold has remained in a holding  pattern over the last three sessions in cautious trade, as investors await for  next week's key monetary policy decision from the FOMC.
