Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 3/10/2014


Gold and Silver prices are flat in early morning trading. Last week’s U.S. payrolls data has most investors thinking positively of the state of the economy, putting pressure on the Gold price. Societe Generale analyst Robin Bhar said, “Clearly Gold is battling headwinds coming from the improving U.S. economy, certainly on the jobs front. We see a close (negative) correlation between Gold and the U.S. 10-year yield, which spiked up on Friday, and saw Gold at its recent lower levels. There's some risk aversion, though, which should be supportive. I'd expect to see a broad $1,330-1,350 [per ounce] range.”

Margin debt is at a high in the stock market at the moment, which has some analysts urging caution to investors. Brad McMillan, chief investment officer for Commonwealth Financial, explained, “As that debt goes up, the market’s foundation gets shakier and shakier. The correction could be deeper.” Also concerning analysts are bubbles, record highs, valuations and the history of bull markets like this one.
