JSE Gold































The Metals:


Gold gained $8.30 to $1366.00 in Asia before it dipped back under unchanged in London and then climbed back towards its earlier high by about 1:30PM EST, but it then dove back lower into the close and ended near its late session low of $134290 with a loss of 0.71%. Silver slipped to as low as $17.148 and ended with a loss of 1.48%.


Euro gold fell to about €1087, platinum lost $1 to $1013, and copper dropped 2 cents to about $3.22.


Gold and silver equities fell roughly 2% by midafternoon and remained near that level for the rest of the day.


The Economy:


U.S. new home sales post largest drop in 16 months; jobless claims up  Reuters

U.S. economy primed for fast start to 2018, leading indicators show  MarketWatch


Tomorrow brings International Trade in Goods, GDP, and Durable Goods Orders.


The Markets:


Oil erased early gains and edged lower by the close as the U.S. dollar index jumped back higher in late trade after “President Donald Trump told CNBC on Thursday the dollar will strengthen over time under his leadership and that recent remarks made by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin about the greenback were misinterpreted.”


Treasuries rose after Trump’s comments raised further questions and uncertainty about what policies his administration will actually be pursuing.


The Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P waffled near unchanged on mixed earnings reports.


Among the big names making news in the market today were GE, Home Depot, Microsoft, and Ford.
