Gold prices fell today, and the main reason was an increase in the U.S. dollar. The greenback started gaining value early in the trading session. That's when Greece missed a deadline to approve more tax hikes and more budget cuts. The reason they were thinking about raising taxes and cutting government spending is because that is the price they have to pay to get bailed out. In other words, if Greece doesn't approve those measures, it will probably end up defaulting on its debts.
