In New York, June delivery gold futures grew 0.14%, being worth $1,220.65 a troy ounce. As for copper futures, they tacked on 0.28%, hitting $2.502 a pound.
Overnight, gold ascended because market participants’ hunger for risk relieved after Trump suddenly fired Comey. Meanwhile, geopolitical worries as for North Korea got back because gold futures bounced off an eight-week minimum.
Additionally, the New York Times posted that just days before he was sacked, Comey asked the Justice Department for extra resources for the bureau's investigation into Russia's reported interference in the presidential election.
Besides this, geopolitical concerns underpinned gold’s rise after North Korean ambassador to Great Britain told that the country will get down to its sixth nuclear test.
