Comex gold futures prices have moved to moderately higher levels in late-morning trading Wednesday. Some more short covering and fresh bargain-hunting buying interest are featured, amid a lack of fresh, major fundamental news to move the market. A weaker U.S. dollar index is also adding bit of an upside boost to gold and silver prices near midday Wednesday. December gold last traded up $13.00 an ounce at $1,333.00.
