U.S. markets are closed in observance of Good Friday.
 
Gold posted modest losses at the end of Thursday’s trading session, as data signaling further growth in the U.S. economy eroded demand for the yellow metal. Talk of soft physical demand in China coupled with reports of funds selling gold positions weighed on prices as well.
 
Data released Thursday showed consumer confidence rose from a nine-week low as Americans grew more upbeat about the economy, while a separate report revealed jobless claims were close to their lowest level in almost seven years.
 
Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia reported that its manufacturing index rose to 16.6 in April, the highest level since September, smashing analysts’ expectations for the index to tick up to 10.
 
Thursday’s reports bolstered the dollar and helped underscore investor expectations for the U.S. economic recovery to remain on track, though the data caught markets by surprise in the aftermath of Wednesday’s comments from Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen.
 
In comments delivered before the Economic Club of New York on Wednesday, Yellen said monetary policy will need to remain accommodative for some time, citing slackness in the labor market and low inflation.
