Oil futures reversed earlier losses, after the United Arab Emirates (UAE) denied reports that there was an internal debate to leave the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). In addition, optimism over Chinese demand helped April-dated crude futures tacked on $1.52, or 1.9%, to close at $79.68 per barrel. For the week, black gold added 4.4%.

Gold prices broke free from a four-week losing streak, and turned in their fourth winning session in five, after the U.S. dollar eased. Specifically, April-dated gold futures added $14.10, or roughly 0.8%, to settle at $1,854.60 per ounce Friday, and 2.1% for the week.
