Gold rallied 1.8 percent, advancing to its highest level in almost six months as the continuing tension between Ukraine and Russia spurred demand for safe-haven investments. Newmont Mining Corp., based in Greenwood Village, Colo., increased 2.7 percent, while Barrick Gold Corp., of Toronto, gained 2.6 percent. Nova Gold Resources Inc., headquartered in Vancouver, advanced 4 percent.
