I think all the quick movement in dollar and PM's has been driven by the 3 month debt limit vote in the house. If they can't agree and finally allow the sequester, that would be a good first step to reducing the defict and bad for PM's. I believe politicians will want to be seen as doing something which means it will not be as effective as the sequester, and good for PM's. I appreciate your posts and over the rest of winter and into spring we should see higher PM prices. Shorter term, I have no clue.
