  • Silver price: $28.93
  • Platinum price: $1826.00
  • Palladium price: $810.80

COMMENTARY: The U.S. Dollar continues to decline against the euro based on improved German business confidence. Gold climbed on the continued uncertainty over the dollar’s decline, Asian physical demand of gold and continued uncertainty over European sovereign debt concerns. The American economic forecasts are tightly tied in to housing market data, as well as jobless benefits. Joel Naroff, president of Naroff Economic Advisers even said 2011 will be a “transition year” for housing. All this news and uncertainty is pushing the safe haven appeal of gold as prices are up for the day.

Gold spot price is up $6.20 – Silver price is up 58 cents – Platinum price is up $11.00 – Palladium price is up $19.30
