The bounce in precious metals takes a breather, with gold (GLD) off 1.6% and silver (SLV) off 1.2%. It's more tough news for John Paulson after his gold fund reportedly lost 27% in April, bringing the YTD loss to about 47%. Add David Einhorn to those taking a hit: "We were somewhat surprised by the swift decline," he said on the GLRE earnings call (transcript), especially given the BOJ's joining in "the global monetary printing race." Einhorn sees nothing to change his long-term bullish stance.
