Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 3/11/2014


Precious Metals opened Tuesday trading higher as investors take in news from around the world.  Data released Tuesday is helping fuel fears of a Chinese economic growth slowdown.  Also, with the crisis in the Ukraine continuing to escalate many feel investors will turn to “safer” assets like Gold.  Peter Fertig, Quantitative Commodity Research owner said, "The situation in Ukraine in itself has led to some safe-haven buying but it is more the impact Ukraine has on equity markets and then the shifting of funds into Gold.”  He then said,  "If the geopolitical situation worsens, we are likely to see more risk-off trade out of stock markets and that should continue to benefit safer assets like gold.”

U.S. and other world stocks are holding steady this morning but with much of the day remaining there is still concern.  Guillaume Dumans, co-head of research firm 2Bremans said,  “Market players remain cautious. There's a lack of enthusiasm in chasing stocks, and some are just thinking about moving to the sidelines after the roller-coaster ride we've had since the start of the year.”  When asked his opinion on market conditions, Markus Huber, a senior sales trader at Peregrine & Black added, “Recent events, especially concerning Russia and Turkey, have made the outlook less certain, and their impact will only be felt in a few months from now.”
