After the gold price closed below $1300 per troy ounce earlier last week, the gold price broke through the $1300/ounce barrier on Friday. The reason was clear: after peace between North and South Korea seemed a matter of time, peace negotiations went sour yet again. After weeks of peace talks between north and south, which should have resulted in a meeting between Kim Jong-Un and Donald Trump on June 12th in Singapore, Trump decided to cancel the Singapore summit due to “open hostility” from the North Korean delegation. “[T]he Singapore summit, for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world, will not take place,” Trump wrote in a letter to Kim Jong-Un. The seemingly never-ending conflict with North Korea appears to remain unresolved for now.

Geopolitical Instability Guaranteed
