Gold is up $18.40, currently trading at $1,299.00, skyrocketing to its highest level since June.  The rise comes as the on-going government shutdown and increasing trade tensions with China finally took their toll on the US dollar, which is down 0.70% today to its lowest level in nearly 2 weeks.  Stocks are up across the board as well, with the Dow, S&P 500, and Nasdaq all up around 1% this morning.
