* Gold gained 1.7% and silver surged 4.9% yesterday after weak U.S. manufacturing data reinforced fears of a U.S. and global recession

* The escalation in the U.S.-China trade war and the political shambles in the UK and Brexit further bolstered gold bullion’s safe-haven appeal

* U.S. manufacturing activity contracted for the first time in 3 years in yet another indication that we are in a recession or soon to enter one

* Silver surged 4.9% to near a 3 year high, breaching the $19/oz level
