Gold is enjoying the political turmoil

Market moves are all seemingly about politics so far this session. I posted on NZ PPI but interest in it seems ...err ... limited :-D

Politics, the story so far:

The Comey memo:

New York Times:Mr. Comey wrote the memo detailing his conversation with the president immediately after the meeting, which took place the day after Mr. Flynn resigned, according to two people who read the memo. The memo was part of a paper trail Mr. Comey created documenting what he perceived as the president's improper efforts to influence an ongoing investigation.

And, adding:

USD/JPY continues its slide - memo may be subpoenaed

Currencies update:

US equity futures are trading lower on Globex

And: CAD being weighed on by OIL
