Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 4/21/2014

GOLD PRESSURED BY ETF OUTFLOWS

The Gold prices are trading at a 2-1/2 week low in morning trading amid technical selling after failing to hold the $1,300 per ounce level. ANZ analyst Victor Thianpiriya said, “One aspect is that the market is pretty thin today and liquidity is going to be constrained,” but there have also been large outflows from the SPDR Gold Trust exchange-traded fund (ETF). The ETF outflows have caused the geopolitical tensions in Ukraine to be pushed to the back of investor's minds for the moment.

U.S. stock futures are higher ahead of earnings reports from Netflix and other giants which are expected to impress investors. Last week was the S&P 500’s best weekly gain since July 2013 at 2.7 percent over four days. If economic data released continues to be positive, analysts believe we could expect more of the same from equities.

At 9 a.m. (ET), the APMEX Precious Metals spot prices were:

  • Gold, $1,290.60, Down $5.30.
