Trading at $1,887.80 at 11am PDT, Gold is up $40 on the day in very active trading. Gold climbed to a record high above $1,895 an ounce in New York and London, as concern about slowing economic growth and debt crises spurred demand for bullion as a protection of wealth.
Silver reached $44.09 in early trading then settled back to $43.59 per ounce, up $1.51 at 11am PDT. Asian overnight demand was healthy on excellent volume.
PLATINUM is trading over $1,900 today, which is a three-year high.
