29 June 2021The Basel III accord came into play on Monday for the European banking sector (with the exception of the UK where the accord is not due to be implemented until the beginning of 2022).

02 June 2021After a brief hiatus, the gold price crawled back above $1,900 an ounce on Wednesday and silver regained the $28 level. It looks as though the rapid precious metals price progress we saw in May may not be maitained in June, although portents still look favourable for gold and silver
