Gold rose last week and hit its two-month high due to geopolitical tensions regarding North Korea and its nuclear missile program. Trump even went as far as to say that his previous threats of “fire and fury” may not have been enough and North Korea went as far as to threaten the US Territory of Guam with missiles.

Another reason that the bullion rallied so significantly last week is due to Thursday’s release of producer-price data. Consumer prices missed expectations of a 0.2% increase in July, rising only 0.1%. This reduced investor sentiment that another interest rate hike is in the near future and sent gold higher.
