Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market Report – 2/19/2014


The Gold price is down slightly today as natural consolidation looks to end the yellow metal’s nine session rally.  “Slower U.S. economic growth due to weather-related vagaries has been the key reason for gold’s rise from $1,250 to $1,332,” Chintan Karnani, chief market analyst at Insignia Consultants, said. The pullback is “just a consolidation phase for gold and silver before the next big move.”  As the minutes from the Federal Reserve’s January policy meeting are set for release today, investors ponder recent equity volatility and sluggish economic growth as factors that could influence slower than expected stimulus tapering measures. 

Much of the anxiety concerning emerging markets seems to have faded as the S&P 500 nears a new record high on the heels of strong earnings numbers.  “Economic data gets a pass with weather,” Rick Fier, director of equity trading at Conifer Securities LLC, said. “The market is rallying back to a more neutral position once earnings were priced in. The market is looking for its next directions and probably needs to be cleaned up a little.”  Investors will now look to the January Fed minutes to gain perspective on the future of monetary policy.
