  1. So this was most likely leaked and added to the sell off, people front running what was coming. Good for correction process, I think we may get to the high 1500's before settling and then back up.
  2. The most important news is that the braniacs on Zerohedge are again DEADWRONG with their usual. :cool:

    Maybe Zerohedge and Financial Times should form some sort of joint venture in their rantings against the European Union?
  3. Whats this have to do with Zerohedge? Or do you just mean those guys are all gold permabulls?
  4. People who cite margin req's in order to 'explain' commodity price movements are generally absolutely clueless.
  5. Expect continued margin increases in this environment. Some believe margin requirements will be cash, before this is all over. Most of the talk about gold bubbles, is coming from the money management community anyway. They don't know where gold is headed anymore than you or I.
  6. Interest rates are the biggest long-term driver of gold prices, just like any other floating currency.
