Closing Gold & Silver Market Report – 7/23/2014


Precious Metal prices are holding steady and trading flat through afternoon trading.  Although this will be the second straight day Gold futures have declined, continued turmoil in the Middle East and Ukraine have provided support to metals.  Blake Robben, a senior market strategist at Archer Financial Services in Chicago said, “There is definitely some temporary support because of geopolitical tensions, but the strength in the equity market continues to be a big headwind.”

Equity markets around the world edged slightly higher on Wednesday after data released showed solid corporate earnings which increased the demand for more “risky” assets.  However, strong demand for safe-haven assets has continued as investors continue to monitor geopolitical situations around the world.  Rick Meckler, president of hedge fund LibertyView Capital Management in Jersey City, New Jersey said, “The bottom line is investors have moved away, for now, from the big political stories and are refocused on earnings, which in general have been good.”
