NovaGold (NG) (GG) (NEM) (EGO) (ABX) Trading Up as Gold Jumps

The price of gold is hopping again today, pushing up shares of gold miners like NovaGold (NYSE:NG), Goldcorp (NYSE:GG), Newmont (NYSE:NEM), Eldorado Gold (NYSE: EGO) and Barrick Gold (NYSE:ABX), as the market remains jittery over the inability of politicians to come to a conclusion concerning the debt ceiling.

U.S. gold futures for August delivery rose to $16.80 an ounce at $1,618.30.

Spot gold climbed as high as $1,624 an ounce and was up 1.1 percent at $1,615.74 an ounce.

Expectations are the price of gold will be volatile this week, moving in conjunction with news stories released covering the negotiations.

Silver Prices jumped to $41.08 an ounce in Monday morning – a 2.5 gain from the close on Friday. It has pulled back since then.
