Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market – 5/28/2014

GOLD HITS LOW AS STOCKS BREAK RECORD

The Gold price hit a 3-1/2 month low in morning trading, adding to losses from Tuesday’s trade. Strong U.S. data paved the way for record highs in U.S. and German stocks Tuesday, and the losses built as support levels fell. Commerzbank analyst Daniel Briesemann said, “It looks as though the bears are in the driving seat. Equity markets are soaring again, so market players may think they can earn more money with stocks than Gold.”

U.S. stocks gave up ground after Tuesday’s record trade while U.S. Treasury yields fell to nearly one-year lows. Nick Raich, CEO of Earnings Scout said, “We've had a bunch of up days, and May has been a good month, but the market could be getting spooked by falling yields. Market bears will say the bond market is smarter than the stock market, and a lot of people thought 2.5 percent was the line in the sand for the bottom falling out of the economy.”
