As the NYSE comes to a close we can see that gold prices have put in a fantastic day gaining $30.00/oz despite yesterdays euphoric response to the European bailout package.
As the chart shows the rise started in the southern hemisphere with Sydney, Singapore, through the UK and finally with the largest gain coming after the NYMEX had closed.
The HUI was also wide awake for this one and it gained a little over 30 points with some of our stocks doing very well such as:
Kinross Gold Up 7.71%
Yamana Gold Up 6.55%
Agnico-Eagle Up 3.47%
AEM Call Options Up 42.68%
Note the leverage by the Call Option on Agnico-Eagle against the progress of Agnicos stock price, spine tingling stuff, however, there are times that you have to drink de-caf instead of a fully leaded coffee when you are trading options.
Smile if you are a gold bug.
