Gold futures settled back above $1,300 an ounce Friday to post a modest gain of 0.3% for the week, with the haven metal finding support following mass shootings in New Zealand and from uncertainty surrounding the U.K. exit from the European Union. April gold climbed by $7.80, or 0.6%, to settle at $1,302.90 an ounce on Comex. Prices finished above $1,309 on Wednesday for the highest close month to date.
