Gold futures have regained the $1,700 to $1,750 range with $1,800 “not far ahead,” said George Gero, managing director with RBC Wealth Management. He pointed out that countries, including the U.S., continue to pass stimulus packages, while exchange-traded-fund gold inflows have now occurred 22 days in a row. “Gold prices are [an] economic and political barometer of our well being, and investors are doing what central banks do --buy gold to shore up currencies,” Gero said. As of 7:52 a.m. EDT, Comex June gold was $28.90 higher to $1,716.70 an ounce.
