Goldman Sachs Group Inc said that bullion’s decline isn’t over as it heads for the biggest annual drop since 1981.

The metal for delivery in February rose 0.1 per cent to $1,195 an ounce by 9:34am on Comex in New York, bringing the drop this week to 3.2 per cent. Futures fell 3.4 per cent on Thursday to $1,193.60, the lowest settlement since August 3, 2010.
