Gold Prices Extend Win Streak

Oil prices inched higher, despite the Energy Information Administration (EIA) reporting a 500,000-barrel increase in U.S. crude inventories for the week. March-dated crude added 2 cents to settle at $80.15 per barrel.

Gold prices settled higher as well to notch their fifth-straight daily win. Expectations that the Federal Reserve will have to slow the pace of rate hikes continued to blow tailwinds. February-dated gold rose $7.20, or roughly 0.4%, to settle at $1,942.60 per ounce.
