Gold and silver rose to their highest prices in 2-weeks, currently trading at $1,915 and $24.50 respectively,  as the US dollar slipped to a 2-week low Monday.  Stocks are up significantly to begin the week, gaining momentum as President Trump’s condition appears to be improving and is scheduled to be released from Walter Reed this evening.  The Nasdaq is leading the pack, up about 2% going into the final hour of trading, and the S&P500 and Dow are both up about 1.5%.  The spike comes after equities plunged on Friday after news that the president was being admitted to the hospital because of his COVID diagnosis.
