Commodity Prices Fee Fall.  The price free fall in metals that began last week looks to continue their free fall in today’s trading. Gold futures are down -6.09% at $1410.00 an ounce premarket, while silver futures are down -10.01%. Platinum and copper prices are also lower in the pre-market. Economists are looking for the reasoning which many believe is due to reports that Cyprus’ central bank will be selling off its gold reserves to help pay for the country's bailout. Additionally, China’s slowing GDP growth is adding to the problem. Mining stocks are also getting clobbered this morning in the pre-market, with the major names down between -4% to -8%.
