Metals soared today as gold closed in on $1,800.00 and silver jumped over 4% to tick about $27.00 for the first time since February.  Both metals hit 10-week highs to begin the month after an already strong April performance. Stocks were mixed as the Nasdaq closed down 0.35% amid a tech selloff, even after strong earnings last week, while the Dow and S&P 500 both finished in the green, up 0.45% and 0.84% respectively.
