Gold, Oil Prices Log Steep Daily Losses

Oil prices snapped a three-day win streak on Thursday, after the U.S. dollar strengthened, and Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak noted he did not expect the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and their allies (OPEC+) to deliver a production cut in June. July-dated crude shed $2.51, or 3.4%, to close at $71.83 per barrel.

Gold prices settled lower as well, marking their fourth consecutive session in the red and lowest close since March 21 due to rising Treasury yields. June-dated gold shed $20.90, or 1.1%, to close at $1,943.70 an ounce.
