Gold and silver prices fell on Tuesday as the dollar made tentative gains.
Spot gold was down 0.5% as at 12.07 GMT to trade at $1334.69 an ounce. Silver, meanwhile, fell 1.7% on the session at $17.06 per ounce.
Gold and silver have made gains over the past week as dollar weakness have made the precious metals cheaper to buy in other currencies.
Gold traded at $1,1313.14 an ounce this time last week, while silver traded at $16.99 per ounce.
However, analysts believe gold and silver could be hurt by US Federal Reserve interest rate tightening during 2018, especially if the Fed becomes more hawkish should it view a pick up in consumer price inflation.
US inflation was largely subdued in 2017.
In a research not, analysts at US group INTL FCStone said they expected gold to trade in a range of $1,225-$1,430 during 2018, with an average price of $1,290.
The dollar basket, a trade weighted measure of the US dollar against a basket of major currencies was up 0.22% on Tuesday.
