Gold get’s it groove going.
Yesterday was great for gold. Not so much for silver or platinum. But gold found footing and headed for $1,800 which is struck today not long ago. That has since triggered selling to take profit of that high and of course to stop its progress if only for a brief moment.
Right now the ExactPrice widget has gold at $1,779.70. Though platinum remains positive at $1,666.90. I’m still amazed that it remains under gold.
Italy is the main driver today I think. The market continues to move from headlines and rumors of winds. Things are very emotional if you ask me, which of course speaks volumes to the level of uncertainty in the finance world.
Here’s a few headlines for you to check out. Also, I’ve started using the Scoop.it service to post to as well, so if you prefer that go here: Gold and What Moves it.
