Closing Gold & Silver Market Report – 6/14/2011

ROLLER COASTER MARKET BOUNCES – Following Friday’s sell off, many investors went bargain shopping today, causing most major stock indices and commodities to rise.  A falling dollar came along with a jump in gold prices, buoyed by fears that an economic recovery will bring further declines in the value of the dollar.  Could China’s currency be experiencing high inflation?  The government there recently raised interest rates through its central bank (again), a sign that the government feels comfortable with the direction of the economy, but also that they are trying to curb inflation, which currently stands at 5.5%.  China seems to have an insatiable appetite for gold, and Jason Toussaint of the World Gold Council says, “There’s a tidal wave of gold demand coming.”

On the home front, the looming debt ceiling crisis continues to make headlines.  Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke told a budget conference today, “History makes clear that failure to put our fiscal house in order will erode the vitality of our economy, reduce the standard of living in the United States, and increase the risk of economic and financial instability.”
