Gold: CME considers price limits; Deutsche resigns from fix panel

|About: CME Group Inc. (CME)|By:, SA News Editor

CME Group has price fluctuation limits for many of its futures contracts, but none for its precious metals and base metals products. Concerned over investor-appetite-curbing volatility, the exchange operator is looking into daily limits.

In other news, Deutsche Bank resigns from the panel which sets the daily gold and silver benchmarks in London after failing to find a buyer for its seat. The bank's last day to take part in the fixing - which has come under scrutiny for manipulation - will be May 13.
