Gold is up this morning trading at 1,354.60 (+$12.20) as tensions rise between the US and Russia due to possible US strikes on Syria after President Assad again used chemical weapons against his own people. The gold spike and downtrend in equity futures comes after Russia vowed to shoot down any missiles aimed at Syria and President Trump tweeted that US-Russia relations are the worst they’ve ever been—including the cold war.
