Gold dropped for a second day on speculation that the U.S. Federal Reserve will start to pare stimulus from next week, and as a bid to avert military action in Syria eroded haven demand.

Copper fell for the first time in three days on concerns that the conflict in Syria will deepen and the U.S. Federal Reserve may curtail stimulus, reducing demand for the metal.

The Fed will cut Treasury purchases to $35 billion from $45 billion, while maintaining mortgage-bond buying at $40 billion. On the LME, aluminum, zinc and nickel fell, while lead was little changed.
India’s rupee rose as much as 5.6 percent in the past four days, the biggest gain since at least 1973, as U.S. jobs data that fell short of estimates tempered concern the Federal Reserve will cut stimulus this month. Non-farm payrolls in the U.S. climbed 169,000 in August, official data showed Sept. 6, trailing the 180,000 median estimate. The Reserve Bank of India last week announced a plan to provide concessional swaps for banks’ foreign-currency deposits to boost the supply of dollars.
