Sept 10 (Reuters) - Gold prices dropped to a four-week low on Tuesday, as investor appetite for riskier assets found support on hopes of global stimulus amid expectations of a breakthrough in the Sino-U.S. trade dispute.

* U.S. Treasury yields rose to three-week highs on Monday, in line with gains in the European bond market.
* U.S. consumers' inflation expectations slid in August and workers grew more pessimistic about their job situation, data from the New York Federal Reserve showed on Monday, supporting the case for further interest rate cuts from the Fed.
