Short-term trend

Gold and Silver futures opened positive in the morning session but lost all the gains as profit booking set-in in the international markets.

Debt-ceiling

On a latest note, the Republicans in US Congress have started to push for prioritizing payments, if at all the situation of debt default arises. Pay the debt first and then only pay your soldier is the stand, analysts say.

“Payment prioritization doesn't stop payments, it just delays them. Then the aggrieved party sues the government, and probably wins, and it turns into a bloody mess," Keith Hennessey, now an economist at Stanford, said in a blog post this week and was quoted by Reuters as saying.

The White House has ruled out any negotiations when it comes to the debt ceiling issue. The US Congress is divided on the debt-ceiling issue and the Republicans are seeking spending cuts in return for raising the debt-ceiling.

"Congress is not being asked to give permission for future borrowing, but for the authorization to borrow to fund programs that Congress itself has already approved.”--Port Land Press Herald, said in an opinion piece recently.
