WASHINGTON (dpa-AFX) - Gold futures rose Friday as nationalist Marine Le Pen remained a favorite to emerge from this weekend's round of the presidential elections in France.
Le Pen represents a significant portion of the anti-EU, anti-Muslim vote.
Meanwhile, U.S. President Donald Trump said he will release the details of his massive tax cut plan sometime next week.
June gold gained $5.30, or 0.4%, to settle at $1,289.10/oz, and was essentially flat for the week. At one point, gold hit a 5-month peak near $1300.
