Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market Report – 2/14/2011

At 12PM (CT) the APMEX precious metal prices were:

  • Gold price – $1,365.60
  • Silver price – $30.58
  • Platinum price – $1828.00
  • Palladium price – $834.50

COMMENTARY: The big news of the day still revolves around President Obama’s budget announcement looking to cut $1.1 trillion over the next ten years. A couple of large pieces to the budget puzzle are the proposed removal of tax protection for higher income households and deeper cuts in spending. The dollar is also coming off its high against the euro. These concerns are causing there to be a wait and see approach with stocks, which has also been burdened with a downgraded rating from JP Morgan on the nation’s largest retailer Wal-Mart, which increases the appeal of safe haven protection of precious metals as prices across the board are up for the day.

Gold spot price is up $4.70 – Silver price is up 51 cents – Platinum spot price is up $14.50 – Palladium price is up $17.80
