Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market Report – 3/14/2014


Precious Metals continue to trade slightly higher through mid-day trading.  Gold’s safe haven appeal has been boosted with low demand for U.S. equities, a weaker U.S. dollar and geopolitical concerns about Ukraine.  These factors have Gold set for a gain of more than 3 percent for the week.  When asked what he attributed to the rise of Gold, H.C. Wainwright managing director Jeffrey Wright said, “safe-haven demand on the back of an escalating crisis in the Crimea.  The referendum to formally be annexed by Russia, moving forward for Sunday, is adding to worries the crisis will end poorly for the U.S. and Europe.”

According to the Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan overall index of consumer sentiment survey, U.S. consumer sentiment has dipped in March as expectations for the future growing more negative.  Survey director Richard Curtin said in a statement, “Overall, consumers continued to demonstrate their resilience in the face of a long and harsh winter, and have not recognized any implications for the domestic economy from the Russian incursion into Ukraine.”
