Though Greece and Italy changed their governments to help solve the Euro zone debt crisis, most investors thought the crisis had already deepened and therefore would lead to strong inflation pressures when being solved, which helped gold and silver close higher during the day. Globally easing monetary policies will remain a key driver of gold and silver prices. SMM expects both to be strong in the short term despite of fluctuations.
