Falling $20 an ounce over the space of the next few hours, gold soon stabilized and is now trading at USD $1322 an ounce. Silver, which had been lagging gold for much of the year so far, has performed incredibly strongly the past few days and is now sitting at USD $22.09 per ounce The latest World Gold Council report into gold demand for 2013 was highly instructive, with China overtaking India as the worlds largest gold consumer.
