The Metals:


Gold saw decent gains in Asia and London and climbed $16.10 to as high as $1326.50 in late morning New York trade before it pared back to $1319.40 just after today’s fed statement was released, but it then rose to new session highs into the close and ended near its last-minute high of $1335.60 with a gain of 1.76%. Silver surged to as high as $16.636 and ended with a gain of 2.47%.


Euro gold rose to about €1080, platinum gained $16 to $957, and copper climbed 4 cents to about $3.07.


Gold and silver equities rose over 2% by late morning before they roughly halved their gains about 30 minutes after the fed’s statement, but they stormed back higher in the last hour and a half of trade and ended over 3% higher on the day.
