Gold and silver declined again yesterday and thus both metals were traded down in eight out of the ten business days in May (so far). The speculation around the next move in the EU following the shift in the political climate in Greece keeps the Euro weak and thus may also been among the factors to pull down commodities prices including precious metals prices. On today's agenda: Euro Area GDP for Q1 2012, German and Euro Area ZEW economic sentiment reports, U.S Core CPI and U.S. TIC Long Term Purchases.
