    I am completely amazed that Pfizer with thier vaccine, has Pfixed covid to the tune of 90% success rate yet gold price varies $115 overnight. They must have also pfixed the pfucked economics at the same time? Gold will bounce back with more gusto after this pfucking knee jerk.

  • From Richards_Karin:

    @ki_lez @iamkoshiek @LindsayBiz @the_gregdavies The Rand has strengthened by around 7% in the last month from 16.72 to 15.58 vs the USD. So each Dollar buys fewer Rands. Gold price has increased by 2.2% from $1909 to $1951. Hence each ounce of gold is now cheaper in Rand terms.

  • From InvResDynamics:

    The PFE news was announced two hours before the the paper gold price was smashed on the Comex. The Spoos jumped at 4:15 a.m. gold remained unchanged from that point until just before the Comex floor opened. This is 100% market intervention in the paper gold market. @TFMetals
