Gold futures settled higher Wednesday, halting what had been a string of seven straight losses—the longest such string of declines in two years.
April gold rose $2.90, or 0.2%, to settle at $1,287.60 an ounce, rebounding from a 0.2% loss a day earlier. Tuesday’s settlement at $1,284.70 marked the lowest since Jan. 24, based on the most-active contract, according to FactSet data. And the drop Tuesday marked seven consecutive losses, the longest stretch of declines since the nine-session fall ended March 10, 2017, according to Dow Jones Market Data.
