The frenzy in stock markets has moved from GameStop and AMC to silver prices. XAG/USD hit an eight-year high before falling down back to previous levels. In the meantime, President Joe Biden is pushing to "go big" on stimulus, but instead of boosting gold, it is causing a sell-off in bonds. In turn, higher Treasury yields make the dollar more attractive.
