(Kitco News) - In the last two weeks, there were three or four Fat Finger or Flash trades. On Monday Morning at 7:28 EST there was a Flash Rally. Okay, there is no real name for what happened Monday morning, understandable that the street only hears about these moves when they are down. More proof that big institutional firms are trying to manipulate metals.
Gold popped from $1,204 and $1,200. Will be a huge level that must hold, or things could get ugly. Silver held and bounced higher from $15.25, but does have a footprint at the $14.30 level. Both gold and silver at key levels and must hold or the pressure will be on.
