Gold Prices Settle at Record High

Silver prices settled 40 cents higher to $19.18 while copper ended down 2 cents at $2.88 weighed down by the World Bank's prediction that China's economy could slow this year and next after popping 11.9% in the first quarter of 2010. China has been credited with jump-starting the global economic recovery and investor fear that any tightening in spending will hurt demand for base metals used in construction.
