Gold is up $5.30, trading at $1,330 after dipping yesterday as stocks rallied with the Dow closing 700 points up from its session low.  Equity futures are down this morning across the board as President Trump threatened China with tariffs on an additional $100 billion in goods and China responded that they’d fight back at any cost.  March’s employment data was weaker than expected, with only 103,000 jobs being created, further adding to gold’s rise today.
