from Jesse's Cafe Americain:
"... As you may recall, I think that it will be in the high quality bullion bar bulk market where the initial signs of failure to deliver will occur. The peripheral and coin markets will stay relatively healthy until the dawning comes, and then dry up overnight. The retail crowd are always the last to know. So lets keep an eye on this.
"The metals were smacked hard today in what *looked like* a secondary reaction to the complications in Europe over their rescue funds. What initially looked like good news for the fans of Draghi was tarnished by a misunderstanding about the role and scope of the German Parliament. There are also quite a few unanswered questions about how it could be implemented in specific countries.
Stocks recovered quickly but the metals remained a bit subdued. ..."
