COMMENTARY:Gold and silver prices are dipping in early morning trading despite continued concerns about conflicts in the Middle East and the European debt problems. Many would think that gold and silver’s safe haven appeal would be driving prices up. President Gadaffi has stepped up military action as he has ordered jets to strike even deeper into rebel territory. Moody’s announced that they are now cutting Spain’s debt rating by one notch. This cut drove the Euro down and thus the US dollar up, but as Alan Greenspan said last week on CNBC, they are both weak currencies so comparisons between the two have a diminished value.

There was also news on the home front that often spike precious metal prices. Surging oil prices helped push imports up to the fasted pace in 18 years, while on the job front, the number of people seeking employment benefits rose last week. Futures in the stock market are falling which more often than not indicates a positive trend for gold and silver. Let’s see what the trading day brings.

Gold spot price is down $10.50 – Silver price is down 76 cents – Platinum spot price is down $23.10 – Palladium price is down $14.20
