Closing Gold & Silver Market Report – 6/26/2014

GOLD FALLS FOLLOWING STRONG JOBS NUMBERS

The Gold price fell slightly Thursday as positive U.S. employment figures removed the yellow metal from its two-month high.  Gold has risen 4 percent since last Thursday.  Much of the advance is due to large scale short-covering by speculators buying back their bearish positions.  Despite the recent rally, U.S. economic news remains consistently upbeat and new holdings among Gold ETFs have failed to expand.  With U.S. equities hovering close to all-time highs, geopolitical turmoil presently remains the sole influence for higher Precious Metals prices.  Investors will continue to eye foreign developments as well as domestic economics to gain perspective on approaching market movements. 

U.S. equities finished the day moderately lower as speculation that higher interest rates could approach sooner than expected.  Even with a string of losing sessions this week, U.S. stocks continue to break records fairly consistently.   With low levels of worldwide inflation, steady economic growth and short-term interest rates near zero, investors continue to be reassured about continued gains among their stock holdings.  However, geopolitical crises continue to pressure bullish bets.  Gold and Silver have historically performed well in times of uncertainty.
