Gold Prices Reconquer $1,800 as U.S. Dollar Cools

Oil prices were higher on Monday, as black gold worked to further distanced itself from its recent six-month lows. Traders were weighing demand for the commodity, following the July's New York Fed survey. September-dated crude added $1.75, or 2%, to settle at $90.76 per barrel for the day.

Gold prices settled higher as well, and reconquered the psychologically significant $1,800 level. A weaker U.S. dollar and cooling Treasury yields boosted the precious metal. In response, December-dated gold rose $14, or 0.8%, to close at $1,805.20 an ounce.
