Closing Gold & Silver Market Report –1/26/2011

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

  • Gold price - $1,347.70
  • Silver price - $27.63
  • Platinum price - $1,812.60
  • Palladium price - $814.80


COMMENTARY:The Federal Open Market Committee announcement was not at all bullish on the economy nor was it impressed with the growth seen so far. Precious metal prices began to surge almost immediately afterwards. The FOMC made no changes and gave no indication they would stop pumping money into the economy through bond purchases.

The big question is, has gold shrugged off its tepid start in 2011 and ready to go on another record run? There are many reasons to expect that gold may be headed for new higher territories. There is the Euro zone crisis; the risk of financial crisis in Japan; a trade war between the US and China; growing geopolitical tensions and riots…just to name a few.

Gold spot price is up $13.40 – Silver spot is up 77 cents – Platinum spot price is up $26.30 – Palladium price is up $29.00

You hear over and over again how every investor needs gold to protect wealth. Gold is your insurance policy against all the risks mentioned above.  Simple gold bullion products are often the best way to invest. Gold American Eagles of all sizesGold bars from 1gram to 400oz
