Gold futures eased back Thursday from a five-session climb as some strength in the U.S. dollar and gains in the stock market dulled investor interest in the precious metal. April gold fell $2.70, or 0.2%, to settle at $1,236.80 an ounce, after settling Wednesday at its highest level in about three months.
