Gold prices fell two percent on Tuesday, surrendering much of the previous session's hefty gains, as strength in the dollar against a basket of major currencies weighed on the precious metals.

Gold, down in seven of its last eight sessions, fell on a firm dollar, weak technical signals and speculation that the U.S. Federal Reserve might rein in its stimulus program.

Meanwhile, silver remained under pressure, but well off Monday's lows, when it slid nearly 10 percent to a 2-1/2 year trough, on heavy fund liquidation in Asian trade and generally weak fundamentals for the metal.
