Gold futures finish higher, holding ground at 3-week high

/ / News

Gold futures climbed Monday to hold ground at their highest in roughly three weeks. Prices for the haven metal found support as uncertainty surrounding the outcome of the upcoming election prevailed, but gains in the U.S. stock market served to limit the price climb. December gold rose $2.70, or 0.1%, to settle at $1,928.90 an ounce. That was the highest finish for a most-active contract since Sept. 18, according to FactSet data.
