Gold futures up for the week to mark at highest settlement since mid-June


Gold futures climbed on Friday as disappointing growth in August U.S. nonfarm payrolls weakened the dollar, prompting prices for the dollar-denominated precious metal to end higher for the week. December gold
rose $22.20, or 1.2%, to settle at $1,833.70 an ounce after trading as high as $1,836.90. That was the highest settlement for a most-active contract since June 16, FactSet data show. For the week, prices climbed by about 0.8%.
