NEW YORK, February 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Gold continued its rally on Wednesday as investors consider gold as safe-haven asset amid the economic policy uncertainties in the U.S. and sending the yellow metal to the highest prices in almost three months. The new U.S. presidential administration delivered several policies in its first two weeks in office, including ending the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, committing to build a Mexican border wall and signing an executive order about immigration ban. Concerns about the underlying impacts of said policies on the economy have been driving the demand for gold. Golden Dawn Minerals Inc.
