The US dollar index ended its continuous gaining run overnight as investors expect Europe will progress in solving the region’s debt crisis. Meanwhile, bargain-hunting increased following previous plunges in gold and silver prices, which added to gains of the two metals. As time is needed to find a practical solution to the euro zone debt crisis, SMM expects gold and silver to keep fluctuating in the short term following this rebound.
