Gold Silver Bullion heading for the first weekly gain this month & a massive one at that. Gold posted its largest one-day gain, over 2% in more than three months in the previous session. Gold, Silver Bullions prices zoomed upside today as a recovery in the euro prompted fresh buying of the precious metal after prices slid to five-month lows earlier this week. Euro recovers from four-month low versus US Dollar to move into positive territory, taking some pressure off gold, though concerns over a Greek euro exit and instability in the Spanish banking system meant confidence was weak. Bullions demand rose on a renewed speculation that the Federal Reserve will announce additional stimulus to boost the U.S.economy, increasing demand for the precious metal as a safe haven.

Greece Update: Concern has grown that Greece may decide to leave or be forced out of the 17-country currency bloc after a rise in popular opposition to an EU-IMF program of fiscal austerity and structural reforms undermined attempts to form a government after May 6 elections. Greeks are scheduled to go the polls again on June 17. A victory by the far-left, anti-bailout coalition SYRIZA – which some opinion polls suggest is likely – would increase the possibility of the country leaving the euro. Earlier this week, the country’s president said Greeks had withdrawn up to 800 million euros ($1 billion) from banks as the political uncertainty deepened. In a further blow, the European Central Bank said it had halted liquidity operations with some Greek banks because their capital was too depleted.
