Gold jumped $11.80 today to finish the week at $1,810.60, posting its sixth consecutive weekly gain.  US stocks were mixed with the Nasdaq and S&P500 both finishing up 0.28% and the Dow falling 0.23%.  Positive bank earnings helped stocks close the week in the green, even as increasing corona virus cases and weaker than expected economic data put downward pressure on equities.  Silver closed 3.2% in the green after reaching its highest price since September 2019 earlier this week.
