Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 4/22/2014

PRECIOUS METALS UP AS NEW SANCTIONS LOOM

Precious Metals prices are beginning to trend upward through early morning trading.  With Easter holiday now over, many investors are beginning to look to what is next.  Analysts at Danske Bank said in a note, “The dollar has in general been supported over the recent thin Easter trading days, reflecting market expectations that the U.S. economy has continued to improve and that the Fed pricing all in all is very dovish.” 

As the situation in the Ukraine continues to heat up, hope for a peaceful resolution dwindles.  As an international agreement to avoid wider conflict showed signs of faltering, U.S. and European officials have stated they will hold Moscow responsible and impose new sanctions. U.S. Department of State Spokesperson Jen Psaki said in a news briefing, “If they don't take steps in the coming days, there'll be consequences. Obviously, we would have to make a decision in the matter of — in a matter of days — if there are going to be consequences for inaction.”

  • Gold, $1,284.90, Down $5.60.
