Gold prices mark highest finish since September, Gold up over 10% in 2017

Gold prices continued to rise Tuesday for an eighth session in a row, settling at their highest level since September. Prices got a boost from a weaker dollar, with the ICE U.S. Dollar Index down a fifth-straight session, and concerns surrounding protests in Iran feeding safe-haven demand for the precious metal. February gold added $6.80, or 0.5%, to settle at $1,316.10 an ounce. That was the highest finish for a most-active futures contract since Sept. 20, according to FactSet data.
