NEW YORK (Scrap Register): United  States gold scrap prices declined on Tuesday, while gold futures prices at New  York Mercantile Exchange settled their highest level in about two weeks on  Tuesday, as uncertainty about China’s economy and tensions in the Middle East  lingered a day after a global stock-market rout.

The major gold scrap  commodities on the Scrap Register Price Index traded down on Tuesday. The 9ct  hallmarked gold scrap prices declined to $391.759 an ounce and 14ct hallmarked  gold scrap prices dropped to $611.144 an ounce.
