Safe-Haven Demand Pushing Gold Prices Higher
(Kitco News) - Gold prices have erased mild early losses and are trading slightly higher and at the daily highs in morning dealings Friday. Buyers have stepped in to buy the dip, ahead of what is an uncertain weekend on the geopolitical front. President Trump has threatened to hit Syria with missiles, but the timing of any strike is uncertain. Still, there is the possibility the U.S. could hit Syria with air strikes as soon as this weekend. Such would throw uncertainty and anxiety back to the front burner of the marketplace, and that's bullish for safe-haven gold. June gold was last up $1.80 an ounce at $1,343.80.
