Metals gained some ground today with gold trading at $1,781.50, currently up $5.00, and silver re-breaking the $26.00 threshold, although both metals are well off today’s highs. Inflation and the Fed’s response to it remain the driving force behind gold and silver prices as reactions to slight changes in Fed guidance remain hyperbolic.  Stocks are mixed with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq up 0.10% and 0.25% respectively, and the Dow down 23 points or 0.07%.
