Have you given up on gold? Surprising comeback after volatile week

Kitco News

(Kitco News) It has been a very volatile week for gold. After dropping $30, the precious metal surged back to its very familiar territory of $1,750-$1,760 an ounce.

Soaring U.S. Treasury yields and a higher U.S. dollar were the main obstacles for gold. And despite avoiding a government shutdown in the U.S. this week, there is still the threat of default as the heated debt ceiling debate continues. Here's a look at Kitco's top 3 stories of the week:

2. Gold price sees double-digit drop as Yellen says failure to raise debt ceiling will trigger financial crisis, undermine U.S. dollar
