Gold Prices Hit 10 Month Low as Euro Zone Concerns Continue to Grow

The Paragon Report Provides Stock Research on Paramount Gold and Silver and Great Basin Gold

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 18, 2012) - Gold prices have fallen in 11 of the last 13 trading sessions and hit a 10 month low Wednesday as concerns over Europe's debt crisis continues to grow. Growing concerns have had investors looking to the U.S. dollar as a safe haven, driving the currency higher. This has resulted in downward pressure for gold futures by making them more expensive for investors using other currencies. The Paragon Report examines investing opportunities in the Gold Industry and provides equity research on Paramount Gold and Silver Corp. (NYSE: PZG)(TSX: PZG) and Great Basin Gold Ltd. (NYSE: GBG)(TSX: GBG).

Greece's political parties have failed to form a coalition government and are set for another election. As a result, fears have been growing that the country could potentially leave the European currency union. "With gold and silver seemingly firmly pegged to the euro, the only way at the moment is down, with the occasional short-covering rally," said David Govett, head of precious metals at Marex Spectron. "At some stage we will have a recovery, but it will be euro-led and that for the time being seems to be a long way away, given all the problems of the euro zone."
