Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market Report – 1/17/2011

At 12PM (CT) the APMEX precious metal prices were:

  • Gold price - $1,362.60
  • Silver price – $28.35
  • Platinum price - $1,809.50
  • Palladium price - $795.50


COMMENTARY: On one hand, renewed concerns on the European debt crisis are causing a flight to safety, which will boost gold prices. On the other hand, it also depreciates the Euro dollar causing the US Dollar to go up, thus suppressing gold prices. In the end, gold and other precious metals are relatively flat. The European Central Bank announced that the Estonia Central Bank has joined their gold agreement. The agreement started September 27,2009 and limits gold sales to 400 tons a year for 5 years. As Central banks have been net buyers of gold as of late, thus competing for supply, this act would seem more symbolic than anything.

Reminder: the precious metal markets will be closed from  12:15 PM (CT) until 5PM (CT).
