Gold remains relatively flat to begin the week, currently up $3.00 trading at $1,793.50 while stocks are mixed heading into the final half hour of trading. The Dow is up over 200 points, the S&P 500 is nearly flat, and the Nasdaq is down 0.16%. CPI data tomorrow and retails sales later in the week should provide investors with some gauge of which way prices are trending, potentially rattling markets giving their heightened reactions to anything inflationary in recent months.
