Gold Flash-Crashes Below $1300

After the shenanigans in US mega-tech stocks over the last two days and the seemingly well orchestrated melt-up to pre-J-Hole levels in the dollar, why should anyone be surprised that 'someone' decided to try to sell $1.1 billion notional into the Asian open…   Sending Spot Gold back below the Maginot Line of $1300…   […]
