Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market Report – 12/8/2010

At 12PM (CST) the APMEX precious metals prices were:

  • Gold price – $1,382.80
  • Silver price – $28.34
  • Platinum price - $1,676.90
  • Palladium price - $729.00

 

COMMENTARY:  Confidence in the U.S. dollar continues to climb pushing precious metals spot prices down.  This confidence may be short lived as some officials believe the U.S. fiscal health is far worse than the European Union’s.  A new study shows Americans have saved less than 7% of their retirement “nest egg.”  Fearing a drop in the value of the dollar, many investors have turned to commodities including precious metals for long-term returns. 

Gold price is down $26.20 – Silver spot price is down $1.44 – Platinum price is down $29.30 – Palladium spot price is down $9.70
