Gold futures finished solidly higher on Monday, at their highest price in just over a week, after an attack on Saudi Arabian oil production sent oil values skyrocketing and investors turning to haven assets, including bonds and precious metals.
December gold on Comex gained $12, or 0.8%, to settle at $1,511.50 an ounce, after registering on Friday a weekly decline of 1.1%. The settlement was the highest for a most-active contract since Sept. 6, FactSet data show.
Silver for December delivery added 45.7 cents, or 2.6%, to settle at $18.026 an ounce, following a weekly loss of 3%, according to FactSet data.
