Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market Report – 3/27/2014

METALS FEEL PRESSURE FROM ECONOMIC DATA AND STRONGER DOLLAR

Precious Metals are continuing to trade lower through mid-day trading as the U.S. dollar edged higher.  Data released Tuesday showed better than expected growth in the U.S. economy and a fall in weekly jobless claims.  This in turn has pressured metals with Gold currently trading under $1,300.  Chintan Karnani, chief market analyst at Insignia Consultants, said, “Gold’s fall below the 200-day moving average at $1,299 triggered stop losses, which resulted in a [session] low of $1,292.”

U.S. stocks fluctuate between gains and losses as traders digest Thursday’s economic reports.  Jim Russell, senior equity strategist for US Bank Wealth management stated, “The markets are likely to trade sideways to slightly negative over the next few trading sessions as some of the pre-announcements from companies indicate the first quarter is going to be pretty weak.”  The process in play, “sets us up for lowered expectations, takes a little positive sentiment out of the market.”

At 1:46 p.m. (ET), the APMEX Precious Metals spot prices were:

  • Gold, $1,296.50, Down $8.90.
  • Silver, $19.75, Down $0.08.
  • Platinum, $1,399.30, Down $9.20.
  • Palladium, $760.40, Down $20.80.
