Gold Surges as Oil Breaches $70

Oil prices settled lower on Thursday, slipping back below the $70 mark after just conquering it in the previous session. Lingering concerns over the financial sector weighed on black gold today. April-dated crude shed 94 cents, or 1.3%, to close at $69.96 per barrel on the day.

Gold prices moved sharply in the opposite direction to settle at their highest level in more than a year. Investors rushed to the safe-haven asset after the growing indication that a hawkish Fed could soon wind down its rate hike cycle. April-dated gold rose $46.30, or 2.4%, to settle at $1,995.90 per ounce.
