Gold Futures Settle With a Modest Gain

Gold futures settled with a modest gain on Thursday. A weaker U.S. dollar and disappointing economic data provided support, but strength in equities drew some investors away from gold. April gold edged up by $1.10, or 0.1%, to settle at $1,220.70 an ounce on Comex.
