PreciousMetalsRecap Gold Regains Some Lost Ground After PlungeIn the wake of yesterday’s steep sell-off, Gold rebounded modestly in Tuesday trading. A BlackRock analyst said that the metal might have been oversold and its value could rise in the face of increasing inflation and more gold-buying by central banks.
