Gold futures finish at highest price in over 2 weeks

/ / News

Gold futures climbed Monday, with prices settling at their highest in just over two weeks. Bullion prices got a boost from a weaker dollar, and as more U.S. government officials test positive for COVID-19, prompting a “dash for safe haven,” such as gold, said Chintan Karnani, chief market analyst at Insignia Consultants. December gold rose $12.50, or 0.7%, to settle at $1,920.10 an ounce. Prices based on the most-active contract marked their highest finish since Sept. 18, according to FactSet data.
