It's the end of the quarter for financial institutions today, but what effect will that have on precious metals? Eric Sprott breaks down all the week's gold and silver news in a wide-ranging discussion you won't want to miss.

On this edition of the Wrap-Up, you'll hear:

• Who got squeezed at the end of the quarter

• Why the mining sector is struggling

• Plus: The effect of the Mueller report on gold

"I think the most important feature of yesterday's events was that we have quarter-end today for the financial institutions. Let's just focus for a second on palladium. There were about 2.5 million ounces of palladium that they were short; they had lost a lot money on that. All of a sudden, palladium is down 200 bucks, somebody is better off by 500 million? 500 million? For quarter-end? Oh, how wonderful! Gee, we made it to the end of the quarter and didn't lose that 500 million… I think quarter-end had a lot to do with this."
