Gold futures climbed Thursday to mark their highest settlement in a week, buoyed by losses in global stock markets and expectations that the U.S. and China are headed for a prolonged trade dispute.
June gold added $11.20, or 0.9%, to settle at $1,285.40 an ounce on Comex.
Among other precious metals, silver rose 1.2% to $14.62 per ounce, while palladium edged 0.2% higher to $1,316.80. Platinum rose 0.2% to $800.52 an ounce, after touching the lowest since Feb. 15 at $791 earlier in the session.
