Fitch Rating’s warning that US banks are exposed to European debt risks and a Euro-era high debt yield for Spanish debt auctioned on November 17th added to worries that the European debt crisis is worsening. Gold saw a largest drop during recent 7 weeks and silver plunged over 6% as a result. SMM expects gold and silver to fluctuate downward as economic risks from Europe are rising.
