Gold prices climbed Thursday to their highest finish in more than two weeks. Prices got a lift after minutes from the U.S. Federal Reserve’s September meeting Wednesday showed that some policy makers questioned the need for another interest-rate hike this year. December gold climbed by $7.60, or 0.6%, to settle at $1,296.50 an ounce. That was the highest finish since Sept. 26, according to FactSet data.
