At the dally gold fixing in London, .at which representatives of the major dealers balance the demand for gold against the supply and set the price, turnover of less than 10 tons was anticipated.

The consensus among London dealers was that the gold pool's action was sufficient to halt speculators but was not far-reaching enough to shake out sellers yet* Frankfurt banks reported the demand tor gold there had subsided but pointed out that Monday is normally a quiet day for gold trading.
