Closing Gold & Silver Market Report – 12/23/2010

At 4PM (CT) the APMEX precious metal prices were:

  • Gold price - $1,381.40
  • Silver price - $29.34
  • Platinum price - $1,720.60
  • Palladium price - $757.70


COMMENTARY: Commodity prices have always been seen as moving opposite to the US Dollar, but Jeff Cos, Staff Writer, builds a case that neither stocks nor commodities need a weak dollar for growth. Investors have witnessed this phenomenon with precious meal prices of late, as they have often moved up as the US dollar moved up.

Gold spot price finished down $6.50 – Silver price down 7 cents – Platinum spot price is down $11.60 – Palladium price was up $1.60

A story surfaced again this week that Russian mines will have insignificant amounts of palladium in 2011 and none in 2012. Palladium bars are a great way to invest in this potential supply shortage.
