Market worry towards the European debt crisis grew overnight, due to rumors that French AAA debt rating might be downgraded which indicated possibility that France, a core European country may be dragged into the debt whirlpool. As a result, market confidence plunged and risk aversion sentiment surged high, pushing up gold and silver prices with gold prices hitting a historical high. SMM expects gold prices to keep strong in the short term due to recent positive fundamentals.
