  1. hello ... I am curious ... if with all the volatility in the last yr

    in the PM sector ... do any of the prop firms whose traders daytrade equities trade the names in the XAU + HUI indices in any size either individually or collectively?

    or is it blackbox's from investment banks prop desks
    and HF 's that do size and are able to push the indices
    up and down and do battle on a daily basis as part of their
    overall prop trading strategies to hopefully generate higher returns for themselves and shareholders
