Mid-Day Gold & Silver Report - 2/24/2011

At 12 PM (CT) the precious metals prices were:

  • Gold price - $1,415.30
  • Silver price - $33.24
  • Platinum price - $1787.00
  • Palladium price - $779.50

COMMENTARY: The global concerns about the situation in Libya are still present. Countries are now looking to extract their citizens as quickly as possible. Human Rights Watch says at least 300 people have been confirmed killed since the beginning of the revolt.

The domestic news seems to be tempering the overall demand of precious metals as oil prices rise, but jobs data counteracts those concerns. The news of GM finally ending their 7-year losing streak seems to have buoyed the industrial precious metals-platinum and palladium. There are still concerns nationally as Moody’s has threatened to downgrade the United States’ credit rating .

Gold spot price is up 30 cents – Silver price is down 14 cents – Platinum spot price is up $9.30 – Palladium is up $3.00
