Gold futures end higher for a second straight session

/ / News

Gold futures finished higher on Wednesday for a second session in a row. Prices found strength from a softer U.S. dollar and concerns over a possible delay in the COVID-19 vaccine, said Lukman Otunuga, senior reseach analyst at FXTM. Where gold concludes this week “may be influenced by how markets react to the European Central Banks monetary policy decision on Thursday,” he said. December gold rose $11.70, or 0.6%, to settle at $1,954.90 an ounce, the highest finish for the most-active contract since Sept. 1, according to FactSet data.
