Gold futures post a gain for a 4th week in a row
Gold futures rallied Friday, with China's plan for retaliatory tariffs on U.S. goods helping to boost investor interest in the haven metal. "Gold is likely to be most volatile during FOMC meetings and days (like today) when we receive a barrage of tweets from President [Donald] Trump and headlines concerning global trade," said Matthew Miller, equity analyst at CFRA Research. "The news regarding China's trade retaliation and [Trump's] multiple tweets attacking the Federal Reserve are overshadowing" the Jackson Hole, Wyo., economic policy symposium, he said. December gold climbed by $29.10, or 1.9%, to settle at $1,537.60 on Comex. That was the highest most-active contract settlement since April 2013, according to FactSet data. For the week, prices were up 0.9%, following weekly gains in each of the past three weeks.
