Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 3/8/2011

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

  • Gold price - $1,436.30
  • Silver price - $36.32
  • Platinum price - $1,809.00
  • Palladium price - $782.00

COMMENTARY: The gold price to silver price ratio has historically run in the range of 57:1. Today, this ratio is below 40:1. Does this tell us that silver is too high; is gold too low; or will they both continue to climb? 

Libyan rebel forces have given Muammar Gaddafi 72 hours to quit. If he steps down within this time frame they say they will not pursue him for crimes. This announcement has placed the precious metals and equity markets on hold with little up or down indications.

Gold spot price is currently up 80 cents – Silver price is up 38 cents  -Platinum price is down $12.40 – Palladium price is down $9.10
