Gold (GLD) futures jumped nearly $40/oz. to log their biggest one-day gain of the year, supported by physical demand, prospects for easier global monetary policies and a weaker U.S. dollar. Today's rally brings gold's recovery to ~50% of losses from the selloff that began ~$1,560. Silver (SLV) enjoyed an even bigger bounce, rising 5.7%, but it needs a lot of catching up to approach historical gold/silver ratios.
