Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 5/6/2014


Precious Metals are trading mostly flat through early morning trading after yesterday’s gains.  As analysts search for positive U.S. trade data to provide evidence of an improving economy, others continue focusing on the geopolitical tension in Ukraine.  INTL FCStone analyst Edward Meir said, “We have to suspect that the Ukrainian situation will continue to dominate and provide an element of support going into May, despite the current weakness that greeted the latest round of sanctions. We think this crisis is likely going to get worse before it gets better, benefiting such ‘go-to’ markets as Gold, the [U.S.] dollar, the yen and U.S. Treasuries at the expense of the euro and equities.”

As U.S. bond yields struggle to regain footing, the U.S. dollar fell to a 6 ½ month low Tuesday morning.  This naturally provided a boost to the euro.  Gavin Friend, a currency strategist at National Australia Bank in London, said, “It's an anti-dollar trade. It didn't go higher on the data (on Monday), so it's got to go down.”  This pullback in the dollar could be big for metals as historically the euro has a positive correlation with Gold.
