Gold just set its most important high in two years.
This morning, the price of gold topped $1,300 for the first time since August 2014. Gold is now riding a six-day winning streak, and is just a few percentage points from setting a new two-year high.
If you’ve been reading the Dispatch, you know gold stormed out of the gate this year. It jumped 16% during the first three months of the year, its best quarter in three decades.
Then, gold cooled off. It went nearly two months without setting a new high.
