Gold is up $11.00, currently trading at $1,697.20 as equities are getting slammed on weak earnings.  April was the best month for stocks since 1987, but they begin May in a slump with the Dow, S&P, and Nasdaq down 3.0%, 2.6%, and 3.4% respectively.  Gold is set to close the week out down about 2% but is getting support today as a safe-haven asset amid increased stock volatility.
