Gold edges down notwithstanding global trade worries

On Tuesday, gold slipped notwithstanding soaring worries as for trade clashes between America as well as other key economies of the world. America is about to put 25% duties on $34 billion worth of exports from China on Friday.

As a matter of fact, August delivery gold futures dived by 0.17% on the Comex exchange coming up with an outcome of $1,239.60 a troy ounce.

In times of economic uncertainty many people rush to purchase gold as a universal safe-haven asset.

At the same time, tracking the greenback’s purchasing potential against six main currencies, the USD index showed 94.67, adding 0.07%.

As for other precious metal trading, silver futures didn’t change, sticking with $15.835 a troy ounce. Platinum futures sank by 1.84% hitting $805.70 an ounce.
