Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 6/15/2011


U.S. stock futures pointed south awaiting the latest round of economic reports, and fell sharply once the reports were released. Even the core consumer prices rose by 0.3%, the largest one-month gain in nearly three years. The core prices are typically a better indicator of inflationary trends since they strip away the volatile factors of food and energy. A separate report showed a regional manufacturing index declining sharply in June.

European officials haven’t made any progress on a potential second bailout for Greece. Thousands of workers walked off the job today to join a strike against the proposed austerity measures that Greek lawmakers are set to debate. The European Central Bank and Germany are still at odds over the private sector’s role in a potential bailout. The euro slumped amid the news. The US dollar is up, but gold has recovered from early-morning losses.
