September 05, 1986|Associated Press

NEW YORK — The dollar turned higher against most major currencies in the United States on Wednesday, after falling in Europe, while precious-metal prices rebounded from the previous day's trading.

Platinum for current delivery rose $11.90 to 663.80 an ounce on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Platinum had fallen $11.30 on Wednesday.

Gold was quoted at $409.75 an ounce at Republic National Bank in New York, up $6.25 from Wednesday's bid.

Gold for current delivery rose $5.50 to close at $410 an ounce on the Commodity Exchange in New York. Silver rose 3.3 cents to $5.35 an ounce on the Comex.

Dealers said Thursday's increase in precious-metal prices represented a continuation of some of the gains made earlier in the week.

"It had more of a momentum behind it than anything else," said Charles Spence, vice president of international treasury marketing at Security Pacific National Bank.
