Gold Takes Off On German Fin Min Comments
Did the LBMA Au plunge enforcement team all take a bathroom break at the same time? The catalyst - dollar dumping accelerates as euro surges on German Finance Minister's latest words (not to be confused with his words from an hour ago which contradicted the latest batch), who said that Germany is ready to make it's contribution to the Greek aid facility. A few hundred parliamentarians may beg to differ. The Euro has surged from 1.3290 to 1.3360 in a manner of minutes. Session highs at 1.3375 may be taken out. We feel so sorry for all FX traders who are still alive ever since the Greek episode began. The main observation: gold no longer goes down when USD surges, but surges when dollar dumps.
