Sudden USDollar Surge Sparks Silver & Stocks Smackdown

EURUSD is back under 1.28 (for the first time since July 2013) as sustained USD demand since around 845ET has driven the USD Index up to fresh 4-year highs. Bonds are not reacting much to this significant move (for now) but stocks are pushing to the lows of the day as carry-induced euphoria is failing fast. Precious metals are sliding led by Silver.
