Gold price spike

The gold price spiked up momentarily by more than $30, before returning to pre-existing levels, shortly after 23:00 GMT = 10:00am AEDT (Sydney), Monday morning.  See Kitco's chart below.

I acknowledge for their chart.

    Jim argues that central banks are acting to prevent gold from rising violently. So maybe strong buying sent the price up on Monday after the Greek vote, and central banks reacted with strong selling within half an hour.
