Gold is up $12.90, currently trading at $1,417.70, wiping away most of its losses sustained earlier this week as ADP employment data came in softer than expected.  102,000 private sector jobs were created in June, falling well short of the forecasted 140,000.  Stocks continue to soar during today’s shortened trading session with the Dow currently trading about 100 points higher than its October 3 record closing price and the S&P 500 sitting comfortably above yesterday’s record high.
