COMMENTARY: The news this morning from an economic standpoint is pretty positive with news of the drop in unemployment benefits claims and the greater than expected earnings news of Morgan Stanley. Another piece of good economic news is that existing home sales looks to have increased for a second month in a row. With the good economic news, precious metals are pricing lower than their previous highs. However the demand for precious metals, in general, is still there. Ronald Leung of Lee Cheong Gold Dealers in Hong Kong says, “Buying from the physical side [gold] is supporting the market for the time being.”

Gold spot price is down $21.30 – Silver price is down 97 cents – Platinum price is down $26.60 – Palladium price is down $15.80
