Gold futures post a second straight gain

/ / News

Gold futures climbed Monday to post back-to-back session gains. Investors “remained wary” of the results of the upcoming U.S. presidential election on Tuesday, as a surge in COVID-19 cases and renewed lockdowns in some nations “raised economic concerns,” analysts at ICICI Bank wrote in a Monday note. Against that backdrop, December gold rose $12.60, or 0.7%, to settle at $1,892.50 an ounce.
