Investors successively exited the gold market after profit-taking on August 12th, due to higher risk appetite supported by naked short selling ban by some European countries and higher margin rate set by Chicago Mercantile Exchange. As a result, gold prices fell after previous continued climb, and silver prices slightly rose supported by buying at lower levels. SMM expects gold and silver prices to keep fluctuating at current-levels in the short term.
