Gold jumped to the highest in almost four months after a U.S. airstrike killed one of Iran's most powerful generals, ratcheting up tensions in the Middle East and spurring demand for haven assets.
Spot bullion rose as much as 1% to $1,543.93 an ounce, the highest since Sept. 5, and traded at $1,541.77 at 2:03 p.m. in Singapore. Prices are up 2.1% this week. Futures on the Comex surged as much as 1.2%.
In other precious metals, silver climbed 1.1%, platinum advanced 0.5% and palladium rose 0.2%.
