Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 3/28/2013


After nearly two weeks, Cyprus’ banks reopened today with strict limits on cash withdrawal amounts. Early information is that the limits are working and there have been few, if any, signs of panic. Today’s reopening has had little impact on the markets, with the euro moving up just slightly against the dollar. Any positive news is welcome as the region’s shared currency is on pace for a 2.8 percent first quarter decline. Although the euro has recently lost ground, Steve Barrow, currency strategist at Standard Bank in London, said, “it’s hardly a collapse in spite of the Cypriot tumult.”

The Gold price has held its ground as the Cyprus bank drama has unfolded. Unlike the euro, Gold is on pace for a 1.3 percent gain this month, its first monthly gain in six months. Eurozone instability fueled primarily by the Cyprus crisis and political tension in Italy has put pressure on investors. Credit Suisse global head of commodity research Tobias Merath said, “With the Cyprus crisis unfolding we have seen Gold crossing back above $1,600 but we haven't tested the key technical resistance level at $1,620 as there wasn't strong safe-haven inflows buying.” Gold gained additional support from Federal Reserve comments reiterating its $85 billion per month asset buying program would continue until the U.S. job market was on firmer ground.
