Gold prices ended the U.S. day session moderately higher Tuesday, on some more safe-haven demand that surfaced amid the simmering geopolitical situation in Ukraine. Chart-based buying was also seen as the near-term technical posture for gold remains bullish.
Gold prices are hovering not far below their recent four-month highs. April gold was last up $6.20 at $1,347.70 an ounce. Spot gold was last quoted up $7.80 at $1,348.00. May Comex silver last traded down $0.07 at $20.84 an ounce.
