Gold Prices Bag Fresh Multi-Month High

Oil prices settled higher yet again on Wednesday to notch a fifth-straight win.

February-dated crude rose $2.29, or 3.1%, to settle at $77.41 per barrel.

Gold prices bounced back to score another eight-month high, with traders keeping an eye on tomorrow's CPI data, which could support the precious metal. February-dated gold rose $2.40, or 0.1%, to settle at $1,878.90 per ounce.
