There was extreme positioning and there were massive liquidations.  Gold ( GLD , quote ) didn't fundamentally change overnight.

Cyrus selling comments were real but overdone.  Cyprus is not the gold's lynchpin.

Central banks have a terrible history trying to time the gold sales market.  Don't believe that they are in the market again.

Not true. Central Bank gold reserves went from 1.003 million troy oz. in January of 2012 to 1.019 million troy oz. in January 2013.
