Gold Settles $21.10 Higher ... ($1588.40)

Today's August Gold futures traded a $22.10 choppy range. The market was fueled as short covering and renewed safe- haven buying helped push the yellow metal through the $1575-$1585 resistance levels. Despite lower Crude Oil prices and a stronger U.S Dollar it became apparent that investors and traders alike were choosing the precious metals as their alternative investment choice as the news from the European Union continues to capture the world's headlines. Greece's newly elected finance minister will have to be replaced due to health issues. And German Chancellor Angela Merkel reportedly stated that EU members need to be responsible for their own debt.

July Silver traded a huge $102.5 range and settled 85.9 cents higher ...$27.52 per ounce.
