Precious metals spent last week on a roller coaster ride all on hopes and dreams of Fed tapering. Those dreams were dashed on Wednesday after Mr. Bernanke and team, held rates and policy in place for the time being. Gold is down at 1320.80 falling close to $12 in the Asian session to start the week. Silver fell harder to trade at 21.473 giving up 2% this morning. Platinum and palladium diverged with platinum trading at 1429.60 slightly in the red and palladium gaining 30 cents to trade at 717.10. Copper is the surprise this morning as industrial metals do not seem to be responding to positive data from China. Copper is down 33 points after the data release to trade at 3.272.
