Gold Logs Fourth-Straight Weekly Loss

April-dated crude futures rose 93 cents, or 1.2%, to close at $76.32 per barrel, eking out a marginal 0.3% weekly win. Support rolled in as investors weighed Russia's supply and China's demand. 

Gold prices fell for a fourth-straight week. For the session, April-dated gold futures shed $9.70, or 0.5%, to settle at $1,817.10, moving 1.8% lower for the week. January's PCE report gave investors pause, as futures rate hikes and monetary policy could impact gold.
