Closing Gold & Silver Market Report -1/24/2011

At 4PM (CT) the APMEX precious metal prices:

  • Gold price - $1,335.00
  • Silver price - $26.98
  • Platinum price - $1,815.40
  • Palladium price  - $812.00


COMMENTARY: Precious metal prices gave into selling pressure and dipped this afternoon with Gold spot price off $8.10 – Silver spot price off 51 cents – Platinum price down $5.90 – Palladium price is down $5.80

The corrections going on in the precious metal markets are certainly not a great surprise when you consider the magnitude of recent gains (especially silver and palladium). Most technical analysts would say there is no cause for concern. There may be cause for concern when the spread between short and long-term borrowing hits the widest margins ever. The difference between borrowing from the government for 2 years and borrowing from the government for 30 years is at 4%. This is often referred to as the yield curve and this wide margin between short and long term borrowing is an unprecedented steepening of this curve. Economist can predict that this means anything from a booming stock market to what would be a catastrophic downgrade to the USA’s credit rating. Investors need to stay tuned.

Experienced precious metal investors know to buy on the dips and there is no better way than with brand new 2011 Gold American Eagles and 2011 Silver American Eagles.
