Events are moving quickly with hopes for a peaceful resolution growing. There are some important meeting scheduled for next week and, last night, Batchelor and Cohen brought us all up to speed.
Again, just yesterday, there were two big announcements:
- German chancellor Merkel is headed to Kiev on Saturday to meet with President Poroshenko: https://online.wsj.com/articles/merkel-to-visit-kiev-saturday-1408442255
- Then, next Tuesday, Poroshenko and Putin are planning to meet in Minsk: https://www.themoscowtimes.com/news/article/putin-to-meet-ukrainian-pres...
This effects the metals and you can already see the impact, especially in palladium. But this "peace process" still has a long ways to go and we are fortunate to have these weekly Batchelor-Cohen discussions to help keep us up-to-speed.
