December gold futures early Tuesday peaked at $1,231.10 an ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange, their strongest level since late June. They eventually settled $2.10 higher at $1,228.30 an ounce.

As of 3:36 p.m. EDT (1936 GMT), spot gold was 60 cents higher at $1,226.10.

Mike Daly, gold and silver specialist with PFGBest, looks for gold to “go much higher” than the record hit earlier this summer due to uncertain U.S. economic conditions and a still “fragile” environment in Europe, where sovereign-debt issues were a major focus earlier this year. The peak for a most-active Comex futures contract was $1,266.50 back in June.

“Economic numbers here, such as housing and jobs growth, have been very negative,” Daly said. “That is giving savvy investors globally a lack of confidence in fiat currencies.
