Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market Report – 4/23/2014


Precious Metals prices were little-changed in early-morning trading, as the Gold price floated above a 2-1/2 month low. “We continue to watch Gold between the $1,275 (per ounce) and $1,280 (per ounce) level where key support is still apparent,” Ed Meir, metals analyst at INTL FCStone, said. The U.S. dollar and equities eased, making way for Gold’s advance.

Earnings reports and a disappointing home sales report are the likely culprits for the decline in stocks. Stephen Carl, head equity trader at Williams Capital Group, said, “The market is -- I don't want to say bracing -- but waiting for something to develop one way or the other.” Peter Boockvar, chief market analyst at the Lindsey Group, added, “The U.S. recovery remains in fits and starts.”

At 1 p.m. (ET), the APMEX Precious Metals spot prices were:

  • Silver, $19.47, Up $0.06.
