Usually a safe haven on days like this, even gold isn't escaping the general panic as the rising dollar sends futures -2.1% to $1688.90/oz. However, silver is taking a much greater hit, sinking 6.1% to $32.244. The metal is "very much as an industrial metal right now," says one trader. Copper -4.4% to $3.473 and Platinum -2.7% to 1563.50.

    when the margin calls go out, everything gets liquidated.
    when the paddy wagon comes, they take away ALL the girls, is the old saying.

  • Why is gold usually a safe haven on days like these? I don't recall too many times where it was.
