Gold prices were under pressure on Tuesday, sinking below the key $1,300-level as speculation mounted that the next head of the Federal Reserve will be more hawkish. The yellow metal climbed to its highest level since Sept. 26 at $1,308.40 on Monday, supported by safe-haven demand as a conflict between Iraqi and Kurdish forces broke out near the oil-rich city of Kirkuk. Oil prices crept higher on Tuesday, holding on to gains made as fighting between Iraqi and Kurdish forces threatened supplies from northern Iraq while political tension rose between the United States and Iran.

The U.S. dollar and bond yields pushed higher, dampening the appeal of bullion. The dollar index, which tracks the greenback’s strength against a basket of six major currencies, rose to a one-week high of 93.37.
