Gold fell to a two-month low on the outlook for higher U.S. interest rates that strengthened the dollar. Many U.S. policy makers raised the possibility they may boost rates sooner than anticipated, minutes of the Federal Reserve's July meeting showed yesterday.

Gold for December delivery fell to $1,277.10 an ounce (-1.23%) on the Comex in New York.
