Gold Settles Higher To End Streak Of Losses

Gold futures settled higher Monday, breaking a streak of losses that spanned nine sessions in a row. Uncertainty in Europe, ahead of the Dutch election, helped to boost investment demand for the metal as traders awaited a policy decision from U.S. Federal Reserve Wednesday that's likely to result in an increase in interest rates. April gold rose $1.70, or 0.1%, to settle at $1,203.10 an ounce.
