By
A A A

Gold for August delivery was up 1.4% at last check, regaining the ground it lost last Friday, and settled a little above $1,400.

Gold funds, SPDR Gold Trust (GKD) and Market Vectors Gold Miners ( GDX ) were up 1.93% and 2.27%, respectively.

Gold firmed up following the U.S. ISM manufacturing report for May of 50.7%, which missed analyst expectations of 51%, but matched the April figures. The precious metal is also getting some lift as no confirmation or news has come from the Federal Reserve on a major revamp of its qualitative easing program.
