Gold soars 2% on Portuguese banking worries

The gold and silver price has risen sharply as the solvency of Portugal’s largest bank was put into question. Traders became concerned when Espirito Santo Financial Group missed a debt payment causing stock markets to fall and debt yields to rise. Shares in the bank fell a dramatic 17%.

Yields on Europe’s most indebted countries rose as the news reminded investors the euro zone is still vulnerable to a sovereign debt crisis.

U.S equities also experienced significant declines as the fears in Europe spread to the other side of the Atlantic.
