Gold futures ended higher on Thursday, with the haven metal getting a boost on the heels of a climb in U.S. weekly jobless claims to a record 6.6 million.
The move for gold followed four consecutive sessions of losses for the metal. June gold rose $46.30, or 2.9%, to settle at $1,637.70 an ounce. That was the biggest one-day percentage gain since March 24, according to FactSet data.
