Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 12/28/2010

At 8AM (CT) the APMEX precious metal prices were:

  • Gold price - $1,403.70
  • Silver price - $29.86
  • Platinum price - $1,753.50
  • Palladium price - $778.40


COMMENTARY: Precious metal prices are rising sharply this morning. Gold price has once again broken $1400 and is up $20.20. Silver spot price is set to challenge $30 as it is up 59 cents. Platinum and palladium continue their winning streak, as Platinum spot price is up $17.00 and Palladium price is up $10.30

Gold is up on a weaker US Dollar, as well as increased buying coming out of Asia. So why is the US Dollar declining rapidly today? Today’s Case-Shiller report indicates that home prices are falling faster in the larger cities. Not only are prices dropping,but they are expected to continue dropping throughout the year.Housing could be just part of the concern. Every bit as much a factor is the looming US trade deficit and the larger Federal deficit. We should remember that a falling US Dollar could hit many Asian countries very hard, as they hold a huge portion of their foreign currency reserves in US Dollars.
