Gold futures rallied to end higher for a second straight session Thursday, with investors anxiously awaiting the crucial jobs data for January due tomorrow. Nonetheless, the gains were marginal after some upbeat economic data from the U.S. dulled the appeal for the precious metal, with the European Central Bank and the Bank of England maintaining the status quo on interest rates and quantitative easing.
