Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market Report – 1/24/2011

At 12PM the APMEX precious metal prices were:

  • Gold price - $1,345.00
  • Silver price - $27.34
  • Platinum price - $1,817.20
  • Palladium price -$816.40


COMMENTARY: Precious metal trading may be in for a bumpy ride today, as mixed messages make their way into the market. The US Dollar was down 0.41%, but the stock market is up near triple digits. These factors generally pull gold in opposite directions. The not so pleasant news, that the US taxpayers have spent more than $160 million dollars defending former top executives of Fannie and Freddie Mac is not sitting well. A closely guarded secret until last week, these costs will continue to go up as more of these civil suits will surface.

On a more serious note,31 people will killed today by a suicide bomber at Russia’s largest airport.


Gold spot price is up $1.90 – Silver price is down 16 cents – Platinum spot price is down $3.20 – Palladium price is down $1.40.
