Gold Futures Mark First Quarterly Loss Of The Year

Gold futures fell on Friday, as waning concerns surrounding the health of Deutsche Bank's balance sheet prompted a rally in U.S. equities. The metal's loss for the session contributed to a decline of nearly 0.3% for the quarter, following gains in the first and second quarters, according to FactSet data. December gold fell $8.90, or 0.7%, to settle at $1,317.10 an ounce for the session. It still rose about 0.4% for the month.
