Gold futures slid to a 2 week low Tuesday on speculation that central banks may begin curbing stimulus measures. On Tuesday, the Bank of Japan left their asset-buying and other policy elements unchanged, signaling an improving economy. On Monday, the Standard & Poor's upgraded its outlook on the U.S.’s AA+ credit rating to “stable” from “negative”, tarnishing gold’s appeal as a safe haven. Data from Bloomberg showed that Gold’s 60-day historical volatility was at 28.8 percent Monday, the highest level seen since December 2011. Here is how some gold stocks reacted Tuesday:
