Gold futures rose back above $1,800 an ounce on Monday to settle at the highest price for a most-active contract since Aug. 5, according to FactSet data. Weakness in the U.S. dollar provided support for the dollar-denominated metal, extending the modest rise in prices seen on Friday, as investors await news from the Federal Reserve’s annual Jackson Hole monetary policy symposium later this week. December gold /zigman2/quotes/210039437/delayed GCZ21 -0.45% rose $22.30, or nearly 1.3%, to settle at $1,806.30 an ounce.
