Gold Prices Move Lower as U.S. Dollar Rises

Oil prices fell again on Tuesday to their lowest spot year-to-date, as banking industry concerns and the impact a potential crisis could have on the economy lingered. April-dated crude dropped $3.47, or 4.6%, to close at $71.33 per barrel on the day.

Meanwhile, gold prices finished modestly lower as the greenback regained some of its strength and Treasury yields pivoted higher. Traders were also unpacking the latest inflation data. April-dated gold fell $5.60, or 0.3%, to close at $1,910.90 per ounce.
