Gold & Silver Update

Gold fell -8.00 to 1277.90 on very heavy volume, while silver was flat at 17.98 on extremely heavy volume. Gold gapped down hard at the open, and sold off even harder, making a new low to 1266.00 before bouncing back. Silver did not have a gap down open, and thus silver ended up flat on the day. Volume was extreme in both metals.
