Investors’ risk appetite improved amid rumor that IMF would provide Italy with 400-600 billion euro of financial aid (this rumor was denied by IMF) and expectations that European leaders and their finance ministers will provide stronger support to solve the Euro zone debt crisis. Gold and silver gained as a result of bargain hunting. The market focus will be the EU Summit and European finance ministers meeting. SMM expects fluctuation to continue for gold and silver prices in the short term.
