Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market Report – 4/26/2011

THE AGE OF AMERICA WILL END IN 2016 WHEN CHINA BLOWS PAST US (ACCORDING TO THE IMF) – Yesterday, we reported this startling prediction and today it began to have “legs”. The International Monetary Fund, using an economic measure called “purchasing price parity”, projects China’s economy surpassing that of the US in 2016. They are also saying that China’s military will soon surpass the US.

Gold and silver are both down ahead of Wednesday's Fed meeting. Stock prices continue to lift and the US dollar has shown some strengthening. There are no surprises expected at tomorrow's meeting, but there will be many questions delivered to Mr. Bernanke at his post announcement press conference. When there is great anticipation in the markets, expectations often go out the window.

  • Gold price - $1,503.90 (down $6.20)
  • Silver price - $45.00 (down $2.22)
  • Platinum price - $1,804.90 (down $22.20)
  • Palladium price -$755.50 (down $6.30)
