Gold gains 1.1% to $1,590 after touching a 7-month low last week amid growing indications of at least short-term capitulation. Another one: Net long positions for the week ended Feb. 19 were slashed by 36% to the lowest level since November 2008, according to Commerzbank, which notes the metal has slid more since the 19th, meaning speculative longs have likely declined even further. GLD +0.6%, SLV +0.9%.
