Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market Report – 3/25/2014


The Gold price has remained mostly flat in morning trading. A firmer U.S. dollar is pressuring the yellow metal’s price, and profit-taking appears to also be taking a toll. Mitsubishi analyst Jonathan Butler said, “Investors are moving on to the macroeconomic factors although there is still a lot of talk of sanctions against Russia.” Butler appears to be referring to Gold’s status as a safe haven, as geopolitical tensions tend to have a positive impact on the Gold price.

Consumer confidence data released Tuesday morning showed an increase to the highest level in more than six years. Lynn Franco, director of economic indicators at the Conference Board, said “consumers expect the economy to continue improving and believe it may even pick up a little steam in the months ahead.” However, Pierpont Securities chief economist Stephen Stanley takes a different stance. “In my view, a rise in confidence driven solely by expectations is not as solid as one generated by brighter assessments of the present situation. It is not that consumers were actually seeing improvement in the economy this month. They just hope that it will come at some point over the next six months, or maybe they’re just feeling more optimistic because winter is finally ending.”
