Gold dropped slightly after Secretary of the Treasury Mnuchin suggested trade relations with China are improving and a deal looks likely in the near future.  Stocks rose modestly on the news with the Dow and Nasdaq gaining 0.35% and 0.70% respectively.  Even with the slight dip, gold is holding steady around $1,414.00, up over 8% in June, and on course for its best monthly performance in three years.
