GOLD

With the continued uncertainty of a trade war with China, today's resignation of Tom Bossert (Homeland Security Adviser), and the U.S. Dollar weakening, we are seeing Gold continue to climb with a lot of activity. There were some profit takers in the market around the $1,343 level earlier, but Gold remains up over the last few days and continues its steady climb. At 11am Gold is trading at $1,340 up by $3 on very good trading volume.

SILVER

Silver has also continued its steady climb over the last couple of days with some minor profit taking this morning at the $16.73 level. Silver is trading actively with the volume of May contracts hitting around 86,000 (about $7.1 billion) so far today. At 11am Silver is trading at $16.63 up by $0.09 on strong volume.
