COMMENTARY: The Gold markets responded positively all day due to the falling Dollar caused by increasing trader sentiment that the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank will substantially inject cash into the U.S. economy next week. Silver pressed to even higher gains on the day. Gold was up 1.6% on the day with Silver up 2.6%. (Click here for a Wall Street Journal article on the Dollar/Gold trade). The U.S. Treasury sold $29 billion in 7 year notes today, while yesterday, the Treasury sold $35 billion in 5 year notes, all of which--$64 billion--represented new debt. The Treasury reported that the two new issues of 5 year and 7 year debt were purchased 39% and 50%, respectively, by “indirect bidders” which includes foreign and international monetary authorities.
