Closing Gold & Silver Market Report – 12/29/2010

At 4 PM (CT) the APMEX precious metals prices were:

  • Gold price - $1,412.50
  • Silver price - $30.63
  • Platinum price - $1,760.60
  • Palladium price - $795.10


COMMENTARY: The news that central banks in emerging markets are getting themselves ahead of the inflation curve sparked a nice rally for stocks, which was also aided by a stronger than expected sale of US Treasury Bonds. However, even though stocks rallied, the US dollar’s value remained on the low side and potentially could be cut in half, according to Peter Schiff, the president of Euro Pacific Capital.

These factors helped support today’s gains in precious metals. Gold hit a three week high and silver was up as well.

Gold spot price was up $6.40 on the day - Silver price was up 30 cents – Platinum spot price was up $7.90 – Palladium price was up $7.00 


Platinum and palladium continue to go up and two great ways to take advantage are the Platinum Eagles or the Palladium Pamp Suisse Bars.
