    Oil Prices Bounce Back After Friday's Fall

    Oil futures were higher Monday, buoyed by supply risks following U.S. and U.K.-led retaliation strikes against Iran-backed militants. For the session, March-dated West Texas Intermediate Crude (WTI) rose 50 cents, or 1.1%, to finish at $72.78 per barrel.

    A stronger U.S. dollar and volatile bond yield market put pressure on gold prices. April-dated gold erased $10.80, or 0.5%, to settle at $2,042.90 for the session.
