What a swing.

It’s early. All I’ve done so far this morning is look at the graph and but WOW. Asia buying of gold and silver last night popped the price and then over night things began to slide down into this mornings Comex open and then bang. Both metals screamed up in a matter of moments. Then some time passed and the sell off was just as violent. What gives? Typical stuff I do believe in a week going into options expiration combined with seasonal moves.
