Gold Climbs in New York as Dollar Pares Gains; Silver Advances

May 27 (Bloomberg) -- Gold prices rose in New York, reversing an earlier loss, on increased demand for the metal as a store of value while the dollar pared gains. Silver advanced.

Investment in the SPDR Gold Trust, the biggest exchange- traded fund backed by bullion, climbed 1.9 percent to 1,118.76 metric tons as of May 22, the first gain in seven sessions, the company’s Web site shows. Gold assets held by Zuercher Kantonalbank’s exchange-traded fund jumped to a record 4.603 million ounces last week, the bank said today.

“Investors took advantage of intraday weakness by adding to their long positions,” Tom Pawlicki, an analyst at MF Global in Chicago, said by e-mail.

Gold futures for August delivery rose $4.50, or 0.5 percent, to $959.60 at 12:21 p.m. on the New York Mercantile Exchange’s Comex division. The metal fell as much as 0.7 percent earlier today. Futures for June delivery, the most-active contract until today, climbed $4.30, or 0.5 percent, to $957.60 an ounce on the Comex.

Bullion for immediate delivery in London climbed 0.6 percent, to $957.95 an ounce. The metal rose to $949.50 an ounce in London’s morning “fixing,” used by some mining companies to sell their output, from $945 in yesterday’s afternoon fixing.
