Gold prices erased their gains on Wednesday after the U.S. Federal Reserve announced it raised its benchmark short-term interest rate by a quarter percentage point.
The Fed also indicated that two more rate increases are likely.
Spot gold was down 0.08 percent at $1,294.70 an ounce at 2:17 p.m. ET, down nearly 0.3 percent from shortly before the Fed's announcement.
U.S. gold futures for August delivery were 0.11 percent lower at $1,298 per ounce.
Gold is highly sensitive to U.S. interest rates, which lift the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding bullion and boost the dollar, in which it is priced.
