Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 12/14/2010

At 8AM (CT) the APMEX precious metal prices were:

  • Gold price – $1,398.80
  • Silver price – $29.41
  • Platinum price - $1,703.90
  • Palladium price – $756.10


COMMENTARY: Gold spot price rose over $1400 in early morning trading, but has since retreated below that “psychological” barrier. Traders and investors will be closely watching the federal Reserve Board meeting today. The Fed officials will assess their latest $600 billion bond buying program, but will they send any new signals? Will the recent tax cut announcement affect their view on the method and amount of QE2? At least one Federal Reserve committee  member, Thomas M. Hoenig, continues to express his pessimism that QE2 was a good decision.

Another interesting note, some readers might be aware that JP Morgan has taken criticism for their “short” positions in silver. Betting that the price of silver will go down. It appears they have reduced their positions in the silver futures market.

Gold spot price is up 80 cents – Silver price is down 22 cents – Platinum spot price is up $5.60  - Palladium price is up $3.60
