JSE Gold































The Metals:


Gold dipped $2.70 to $1289.20 in Asia before it bounced back to $1297.80 in London and then fell to a new session low of $1288.30 at about 9AM EST in New York, but it then chopped back higher into the close and ended with a gain of 0.13%. Silver slipped to as low as $16.319 before it also rallied back higher, but it still ended with a loss of 0.54%.


Euro gold rose to about €1105, platinum lost $3 to $902, and copper fell 5 cents to about $3.06.


Gold and silver equities rose roughly 1% by late morning and remained near that level for the rest of the day.

The Markets:


Oil fell 0.5% after the Energy Information Administration reported that crude inventories rose 5.8 million barrels, gasoline inventories rose 1.9 million barrels, and distillates fell 1.0 million barrels.


The U.S. dollar index rose on geopolitical concerns that sent treasuries higher and the Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P lower throughout the morning, but the fed’s calm and gradual commentary on interest rates took stocks modestly higher by the close.


Among the big names making news in the market today were Deutsche Bank, Tesla, Comcast, Tiffany, and Target.
