Sheds most of its prior day's gains as margin requirements tighten
Precious metal prices dropped from their recent historic highs on Wednesday, 10 November 2010. Strong dollar and reports of tighter margin requirement for silver pricing acted as the dampener for the recent upsurge in bullion metal prices. Precious metals have been striking new records since past few days trended following last week's confirmation of a new round of quantitative easing.

"The benchmark stock indices continued to remain rangebound and are unable to find any specific direction after last week’s strong rally. Globally too, equities have struggled this week as the dollar has strengthened against major rivals", says Amar Ambani, Head of Research (India Private Clients) - IIFL.
That said, the intermediate trend remains up and the Sensex and the Nifty will take out previous record peaks sooner than later. The Nifty is expected to trade in a range of 6200-6400 in the near term. A break in the current pattern is likely if the Nifty breaches the range on either side.
