Gold futures closed lower on Wednesday as strength among U.S. equities lured investors away from the precious metal, but prices climbed in electronic trading after the release of minutes from the Federal Reserve's March meeting. The minutes revealed that Fed officials had a secret video conference call, in which central bankers were clearly worried that changing the forward guidance would impact markets. June gold fell $3.20, or 0.2%, to settle at $1,305.90 an ounce on Comex, ahead of the releases of the Fed minutes. In electronic trading after the release, June gold traded at $1,310.50.
