Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 7/14/2014


Precious Metals prices are falling this morning, with Gold and Silver nearing a two percent drop. With Gold coming off a six-week winning streak, profit-taking is the most likely culprit for today’s drop. Edward Meir of INTL FCStone is still optimistic about the week for Gold, however, as he said, “We were concerned that we were not seeing any follow-through buying to accompany the $40 an ounce spurt higher we saw set in on June 19th. We therefore expect to see a little more upside action this week, with festering geopolitical hotspots providing support.”

U.S. stock futures are pointing toward a positive open for Wall Street. While many investors have worried that the U.S. Federal Reserve would be raising interest rates, recent news has lifted investors’ spirits. A number of big banks in the U.S. are set to post second-quarter declines in earnings. Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi’s Lee Hardman explained, “Firstly, there may now be less economic slack than estimated by the Fed arguing in favor of earlier rate hikes. Secondly, the neutral policy rate will also likely be lowered implying that the Fed may need to raise the Fed funds rate by less. The Fed's estimate of the longer-run Fed funds rate has already been lowered to 3.75 percent from 4.00 percent at the end of last year.”
