Closing Gold & Silver Market Report – 6/2/2011

TOMORROW IS THE ECONOMIC RECOVERY’S GROUNDHOG DAY!

Precious metals remain lower this afternoon, however a recent warning from Moody’s Investors Service may change that.  The credit rating agency warned the United States that if there is no progress in the debt limit situation, the important Aaa debt rating could possibly be downgraded soon.  Warnings of a downgrade aren’t new, but earlier reports showed that it would be coming much later this year, if it were to happen.

Stocks were relatively flat after a volatile trading session, likely due to the upcoming jobs report.  Tomorrow is somewhat of a Groundhog Day, with the nonfarms payroll report being the groundhog, expected to show us where the economic recovery is headed.  Most analysts are fearing it will show us that the recovery is indeed slowing (or halted, for that matter).

At 4:00 pm (CT) the APMEX precious metals spot prices were:

  • Gold – $1,535.20 (down $8.50 on the day)
  • Silver - $36.24 (down $1.54)
  • Platinum - $1,817.30 (down $7.60)
  • Palladium - $775.10 (down $6.00)
