Battle for $1,700 continues.

Yeah, I know it’s obvious.

Watching the action this morning graph out with ExactPrice left me impressed in the early morning with the spike in the hours around 3am, but boy this afternoon around 12:30pm someone hit the sell button and the price caved in near about the same amount that it spiked in the early morning. So now we sit at $1,673.70 which is negative by $6.89 for gold. Platinum remains positive though not by much.

Here’s links for today.
