The Metals:

 

Gold gained $3.20 to $1233.30 in Asia before it dropped back to $1225.70 by a little after 8AM EST and then bounced back to gains by midmorning in New York ahead of a fall back to $1227.40 by early afternoon, but it then jumped higher into the close and ended with a gain of 0.2%. Silver slipped to as low as $14.653 and ended with a loss of 0.41%.

 

Euro gold rose above €1081, platinum lost $1.50 to $828.50, and copper remained at about $2.75.

 

Gold and silver equities fell roughly 2% by early afternoon and remained near that level for the rest of the day.
