(Kitco News) -Comex gold futures prices have pulled back from the daily high in mid-morning trading Friday. News that Libya has announced it will abide by the just-implemented United Nations sanctions prompted a quick drop in crude oil prices from their daily highs and boosted the U.S. stock indexes. This in turn pushed the gold market down from its daily highs. However, gold prices are still trading higher on the day. April gold last traded up $13.00 an ounce at $1,417.20.
