    Tensions in Middle East Send Commodities Mixed

    Oil prices snapped a three-day win streak, even after a drone strike Sunday killed three U.S. troops in Jordan. The deaths raise concerns about increased tensions in the Middle East, especially after U.S. President said the U.S. "shall respond" to the attack; however, the markets failed to reflect the dangers. For the session, March-dated West Texas Intermediate Crude (WTI) fell $1.23, or 1.6%, to finish at $76.78 a barrel.

    While the escalation in the oil-rich region failed to dent crude, the move helped gold prices rise Monday.  The now most-active April-dated gold gained $8.50, or 0.4%, to settle at at $2,044.60 for the session.
