Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 4/11/2011

GOLD PULLS BACK & SILVER CONTINUES TO SOAR

Gold prices are settling back, as we suspect some profit taking has occured overnight. Silver prices continue to soar. Late Friday evening, a budget deal was announced with much pomp and circumstance, and the government was not shut down. While both sides hugged and claimed victory, most viewed this as yet another example of a dysfunctional system. Neither side did anything to enhance their image.

Libyan President Gaddafi, reportedly accepted a peace plan proposed by the African Union, and then immediately bombed the town of Misrata. President Gaddafi in his acceptance still indicates he will not step down and rebel forces insist that he must. This situation does not appear to be on a fast track to ending anytime soon.

The US dollar continues to decline and this morning, its weakness extends even to the Japanese Yen. The dollar has been falling relative to other world currencies, but the Yen comes as a surprise.It is important to note that although this appears to be driving up stock futures, potential gains will only be mitigated by loss of purchasing power.
