Metals Stocks: Gold notches 5th straight session climb, longest run of gains since January

Gold futures finished with a modest gain Tuesday to tally a fifth straight session climb, as a broad rise in benchmark U.S. stock indexes failed to knock prices for the haven metal lower.

Gold has climbed this week, largely on the back of more tension between the U.S. and other countries over trade and tariffs along with expectations for lower interest rates as bond yields have fallen sharply.

Gold for August delivery on Comex GCM19, +0.20% rose 80 cents, or nearly 0.1%, to settle at $1,328.70 an ounce after spending much of the session struggling for direction. The settlement was the highest since Feb.
