Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market Report – 4/25/2014

PRECIOUS METALS CONTINUE RISE ON WORLD NEWS

Precious Metals are trading higher through mid-day as investors continue to monitor the geopolitical situation in the Ukraine.  Gold’s increase has set the metal up for its first weekly gain in almost two weeks.  Richard Gotterer, managing director and senior financial advisor at Wescott Financial Advisory Group, said, “During the past couple of months, Gold seems to have found a comfortable base range to trade within.  With Russia and the Ukraine dominating the global conflict front, any potential for increased military action is going to put a floor in Gold’s trading range, with an upward bias.”

In a recent Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan survey, U.S. consumer sentiment for April beat expectations and rose to a nine-month high as investors’ short term views have been boosted.  While things look good in the short term, many are interested in what is down the road.  Survey director Richard Curtin said, “Resilience is dependent on positive long term economic expectations. While near term expectations have improved substantially, longer term expectations for personal finances as well as the overall economy have not improved as much.”
