Closing Gold & Silver Market Report – 10/25/2011


Precious metals continue to rise on the news of the European debt crisis meeting being canceled for this week.  Both gold and silver have broken through to a one-month high, with gold finally passing the $1,700 mark investors have been watching for.  Richard Ross, Chief Technical Strategist at Auerbach Grayson & Co., commented on the jump in prices, “Gold has kind of been like a sleeping giant for the last month or so.” 

Gold may also have been awakened by news of the August Case-Shiller 20-city home price index declining as much as 3.8% year-over-year.  The September number for consumer confidence had also fallen, coming in at 39.8, short of the 46 estimate.  This number puts it at the lowest since March 2009.

At 4:00 PM (CT) the APMEX precious metals spot prices were:

  • Gold - $1,708.40 – Up $54.10.
  • Silver - $33.30 – Up $1.62.
  • Platinum - $1,567.50 – Up $25.50.
