Gold Futures Settle Higher, But Lose Grip On $1,250

Gold futures climbed Tuesday, finding some safe-haven support in the wake of the terror attacks in Belgium. But prices lost hold of the key $1,250-an-ounce level after some U.S. Federal Reserve officials Monday hinted at a possible interest-rate hike as early as April. Gold for April delivery settled at $1,248.60 an ounce, up $4.40, or 0.4%, after trading as high as $1,260.90.
