Gold prices closed flat on Friday, but booked a weekly gain, putting an end to the yellow metal's longest streak of weekly losses in four years. Gold for June delivery /zigman2/quotes/210034565/delayed GC00 -0.23% finished the session virtually unchanged, up just 90 cents, to settle at $1,842.10 an ounce on Comex, as continued volatility in equity markets led the S&P 500 index /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX -0.13% to trade below the threshold needed for it to enter a bear market. For the week, the most-active gold contract gained 1.8%, snapping a four-week skid that was its longest stretch of weekly losses since August 17, 2018, when it fell for six weeks in a row, according to Dow Jones Market Data.
