Gold prices are rebounding on renewed concerns about Europe's debt problems and as more people in the U.S. apply for unemployment.

Gold rose $5.90 to finish at $1,763.20 an ounce Thursday. It fell $134.60 in the past two days.

It's the latest in a string of price changes that have occurred in August as investors trade contracts based the economic news of the day.

The U.S. government says jobless applications rose last week to the highest level in a month, although the figure was inflated by thousands of striking Verizon workers.

In Europe, debate continues about the best way to resolve debt problems in several countries.

In other trading, oil and energy products are higher while metals and agricultural contracts are mixed.
