After approaching $1,360 earlier, gold prices are trading $1,353, up $4.00 on the day following yesterday’s $15 rally.  Dollar weakness continues—the euro is above $1.20 on expected strong European growth and talk of European Central Bank tapering.  10-year US Treasury yields continue to decline (currently 2.03%).  North Korean tensions, massive hurricanes and now an earthquake in Mexico are in our headlines today.
