Gold and silver both rose sharply this morning after February’s jobs report showed much weaker than expected growth.  Only 20,000 jobs were created (vs. 180,000 expected) which makes February the worst month for job creation since September 2017.  Gold and silver are up $10.00 and $0.25, respectively, while stocks are tumbling over the news with the Dow currently down over 200 points.
