With Dollar Down, Gold and Silver Post Gains

Today's trading session in the U.S. proved positive for both gold and silver as the U.S. dollar slipped on its index. Gold is currently up $15.40 to $1,335.40 per ounce.

Silver also saw positives in today's session, rising up to $16.78 per ounce - an increase of $0.368 from yesterday's session. While today saw an increase in investor risk purchases, typically-safe haven investments such as precious metals were not affected negatively today.

In other markets, the U.S. stock market saw an overall positive trading day, with market participants crossing their fingers for a roll-back on recently-announced aluminum and steel trading tariffs. The price on Nymex crude oil is essentially unchanged today, coming in at barrels just under $63.00 per piece.
