Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 4/14/2014

GOLD GAINS ON UKRAINE TENSIONS

The Gold price gained slightly in early morning trading on increased tensions in Ukraine. Officials in the country gave pro-Russian separatists a deadline to disarm by this morning, or a “full-scale anti-terrorist operation” will be enacted by its armed forces. ABN Amro analyst Georgette Boele said, “You have tensions between Russia and the West over Ukraine again which is giving support to Gold, although the strength coming from expectations interest rates in the U.S. will stay low for a prolonged period is a more dominant driver overall.”

Stock futures gained slightly, though the aforementioned Ukraine tensions caused many investors to pull out of equities. Many analysts were looking at Citigroup’s earnings results, which impressed investors and brought some money back into the market. However, the situation in Ukraine will continue to pressure risky assets. Valutrades analyst Joao Monteiro said, “With the growth outlook a clear issue for investors, they will look to corporate earnings for some confidence.”
