Gold futures ended higher on Thursday, recouping their loss from a day earlier and then some — when prices settled at their lowest in more than 15 months. The U.S. dollar saw some weakness as the euro climbed in the wake of the European Central Bank’s decision to lift its key interest rate, and U.S. Treasury yields declined, providing support for the precious metal. August gold GCQ22, -0.12% rose $13.20, or 0.8%, to settle at $1,713.40 an ounce after posting a loss of 0.6% on Wednesday.
