Gold is up $19.60, trading at $1,347.30 this morning, reaching its highest level in over a month. Metal prices initially jumped on Wednesday after the Fed raised interest rates, but stated they forecast a total of three rate hikes this year—less than the initial four predicted. Metals got a second boost yesterday as Trump said he would impose tariffs on $60 billion in Chinese imports, causing the Dow to drop more than 700 points amid fears of a trade war.
