Gold gains, set for biggest yearly rise since 2010
(Reuters) - Gold prices rose on Tuesday to a three-month high as the dollar weakened, with the precious metal set for its biggest annual rise in nearly a decade in 2019, when the U.S.-China trade war had investors seeking safe harbors from a possible recession. Gold was up 4% for December, on track for its biggest monthly rise since August.
Spot gold rose 0.3% to $1,519.41 per ounce as of 1:37 p.m. ET (1837 GMT), having earlier hit a three-month high of $1,525.20.
