almost 50 pips yesterday on the back of concerns re: EZ growth & stability
playing out against broader USD strength.
- The Italian government's conflict with the country's central bank escalated
yesterday, after the League's lawmaker Borghi proposed legislation stating that
$103bn worth of gold holdings deposited in the bank belongs to the Italian
state. The ruling coalition's League party went on to draft a law proposal which
would eventually allow the gov't to sell the country's gold reserves via a
change to the constitution.
