Gold is holding steady above $1,800 and silver is closing in on its highest price in nearly 4 years, with the September contract breaking $19.80.  The rise comes as new corona virus cases continue to increase across most states.  Stocks closed in the green again today as positive vaccine trials and better than expected earnings are helping investors shrug off any pandemic concerns they may have.  The Dow and S&P 500 finished up nearly 1% each while the Nasdaq gained 0.60%.
