The worst U.S. recession since the 1930s has probably ended, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke said yesterday. The U.S. Dollar Index slid to its lowest level in almost a year as a more optimistic economic outlook reduced demand for the currency’s relative safety. Gold is trading 1.7 percent below a record $1,032.70 an ounce set in London in March 2008.

“The inflation story has got people very concerned,” said Bernard Sin, head of currency and metals trading at bullion refiner MKS Finance SA in Geneva. “People are trying to move dollars into commodities, especially gold. The market is really concerned about the behavior of the dollar.”

Immediate-delivery bullion advanced as much as $10.60, or 1.1 percent, to $1,018.15 an ounce and traded at $1,014.88 by 9:45 a.m. local time. December gold futures were 1 percent higher at $1,016.40 an ounce on the New York Mercantile Exchange’s Comex division. Other precious metals gained to the highest prices in a year.
