Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 7/18/2014

PROFIT TAKING OVERCOMES GOLD’S SAFE HAVEN APPEAL

Precious Metals are trading lower in morning trading after yesterday’s increase. After a Malaysian Airlines flight was reportedly shot down near the tense Ukraine-Russia border yesterday, the Gold price reacted as a safe haven investment normally would. Quantitative Commodity Research’s Peter Fertig said, “There was a spike higher in Precious Metals yesterday but investors do not expect a lasting impact from the situation in Ukraine.” Similarly, UBS said in a note, “Both the Ukraine and Iraqi crises have encouraged Gold buying this year, but the impact has been inconsistent and moderate.”

U.S. stock futures are pointing toward a flat open. Safe haven stocks continue to benefit from yesterday’s airline situation. Nicholas Colas, chief market strategist at ConvergEx Group, said, “Given the events of today and the global equity market’s negative reaction, it is a good time to both assess the details of today’s action and review current market conditions.”
