COMMENTARY – Gold prices were fairly stable this morning and trading has been very active. Silver, Platinum and Palladium are all a few ticks higher than at the open. The precious metal market did not continue last night’s strong surge upward because of activity in the currency exchange markets. Foreign currencies did experience some mild profit-taking. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is now down 45 points due to another disappointing report on the employment front.
