Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market Report – 2/17/2014

SOFT DOLLAR CONTINUES TO BUOY METALS

Gold continues to claw its way upward as a weaker dollar has helped lift the yellow metal to its highest level in over three months.  Gold began rallying toward the end of January as emerging market concerns caused fearful investors to seek asylum in Precious Metals.  As equities rebound, a softer U.S. dollar seems the only traditional factor in motivating the Gold price.  "The question is how much further it can run … it could be pushed towards the mid-$1,400 [per ounce],” Sean Corrigan, chief investment officer at Diapason Commodities Management, said.  Gold has experienced several consecutive sessions of gains and investors will wait to see if the momentum can continue and reverse the bearish trend.

Global stocks are higher today, extending for the longest string of gains since 2010.  Chinese financing figures climbed, lending optimism about the nation’s future prospects and helping to lift equities.  “The money and credit data have reinforced the sense that China’s not on the verge of collapsing and that’s always a positive,” Tim Condon, head of Asian research at ING Groep NV, said.
