  • have i got this right? the asia exchange ups margin requirements two days ago, driving down gold just the way silver was driven down, except nowhere near the depth.

     

    cme does it the next day, continuing the low price.

     

    that's not a correction, that's an intervention. a double shot. only pushed it down 5%.
