Gold is up $18.40, trading at $1,322.10 this morning after having a very poor week where it dropped close to the $1,300.00 threshold.  The dollar took a hit today after Trump hinted at future tariffs on steel and aluminum, with some fearing such actions could start a trade war. Equity markets were also shaken by his comments with Dow futures down over 1% prior to opening bell.
