Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 4/2/2014


Precious Metals prices are broadly higher in early morning trading, shrugging off a positive report from Automatic Data Processing (ADP). Further data is due this week, which investors are anxiously awaiting to gauge the U.S. economy. Analysts believe that even in the face of strong U.S. data, the Gold price could be protected in some way by Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen’s recent comments defending the Fed’s stance on easy monetary policy. UBS analysts mentioned in a note that Gold needs physical demand to pick up in Asia and other regions to improve.

ADP’s private-sector employment report showed 191,000 jobs added in March and a revised number of 178,000 jobs added in February. Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics, said, “The job market is coming out from its deep winter slumber. Job gains are consistent with the pace prior to the brutal winter. Even better numbers are likely in coming months as the weather warms.” Many economists use this data to predict the outcome of the U.S. Labor Department’s jobs report, due Friday.
