Gold Tags Last Friday's High and Low In 45 Minutes

Gold managed to get back to unchanged from last Friday's close and has now last over $50 in the last 45 minutes. Interestingly dropping like a stone to exactly the levels pre-spike on that day. Few rumors of margin calls out of Europe but nothing specific to drive this other than the levels and the opportunity for the QE3-hopers to cover their weak longs from Friday? Or perhaps the rumor that the ECB did not rule out using gold-backing for EuroBonds is off the table now that Greece looks unlikely to meet its necessary debt exchange participation rates?


ES made it all the way back up to VWAP on this selloff in gold but is now back below its lows of the morning.
