Gold futures rose Thursday, touching intraday highs above the psychologically important $1,800 mark and recouping some of the losses suffered in the previous session. Investors await a speech from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell at the Jackson Hole symposium Friday for hints on the timing of the central bank's plan to scale back crisis-era monetary policy accommodations. December gold /zigman2/quotes/210039437/delayed GCZ21 +0.52% rose $4.20, or 0.2%, to settle at $1,795.20 an ounce after losing 1% Wednesday.
