Gold climbed on Monday, nearing its highest level since November, as worries about the political landscape in the United States and Europe reinforced investor interest.
Spot gold was up 0.99 percent at $1,231.84 an ounce — around a level last reached in November. U.S. gold futures for April delivery settled at $1,232.10 an ounce after hitting the highest level since mid-November earlier in the day.
Political uncertainty in the United States has been fueled by President Donald Trump's policies, the most controversial of which is a temporary ban on immigrants from seven mostly Muslim
