Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 1/6/2011

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

  • Gold price - $1,372.40
  • Silver price - $29.30
  • Platinum price - $1,732.50
  • Palladium price - $766.40


COMMENTARY: Economic optimism remains a key phrase this morning as the metals market is trading slightly down. The official U.S. nonfarm payrolls data report comes out tomorrow and some analysts feel that a strong report (like the ADP report from yesterday) will show that the U.S. economic recovery may be in a growth phase that is accelerated beyond expectations. However, too strong of a report could mean that the Federal Reserve may start withdrawing its “QE2” stimulus sooner than expected. Of course, this optimism means that metals prices are slipping, as the dollar is firming versus some other major currencies and risk appetite is increasing as well. As we’ve mentioned in this space before, this means investors are more willing to take a risk with stocks as opposed to the safe-haven appeal of gold and other precious metals. Risk management is what portfolio diversification is all about, and there’s no better way to insure your portfolio against that risk than gold or other precious metals.

Gold spot price is currently down $2.20 – Silver price is up 7 cents – Platinum spot price is down $1.30 – Palladium spot price is down $10.30
