Closing Gold & Silver Market Report – 4/15/2014


The Gold price dipped sharply early in the day and although it stabilized in the afternoon, it was still the sharpest decline since December 2013. Much of the decline was triggered by technical selling after Gold broke its 200-day moving average. Silver, Platinum and Palladium sold off as well. “Gold was hit by profit-taking as the rally to $1,330 on Fed minutes appeared overdone. The break below 200-day moving average and $1,300 level also triggered tons of sell-stops," Newedge Precious Metals trader Thomas Capalbo said.

Stocks executed a reversal of fortune today as the Dow bounces off a triple digit decline and the Nasdaq makes its biggest turnaround in five years.  Investors shook off morning concerns about housing data and the conflict in the Ukraine to rally around positive earnings reports from Coca-Cola and Johnson & Johnson. The tensions in Ukraine are “one more source of the tug of war between those who think the market should go up and those who can't find a reason to send it higher. Russia is a simmering pot that has the potential to boil over and at least dampen investor complacency," Bruce McCain, chief investment strategist at Key Private Bank, said.
