Precious metals futures ended from flat to nearly unchanged in their start to the new trading week on Tuesday. U.S. markets closed Monday for Presidents Day.

Gold for April delivery dipped 20 cents, or less than 0.1%, to settle at $1,238.90 an ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange.

“Gold’s resilience is all the more impressive considering U.S. equities are setting record after record, while the dollar is also fairly strong,” Reuters quoted INTL FCStone analyst Edward Meir.
