Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market Report – 5/13/2014


Gold and Silver prices were mostly flat in morning trading as stocks hovered near the record highs reached Monday. The dollar gained against the euro, hitting a one-month high against the European Union’s joint currency. Commerzbank analyst Daniel Briesemann said, “What's pointing to lower prices are the stronger equity markets, the firmer dollar. (But) it looks as though the Gold price has found some support around these levels. It seems to be a level at which buyers are stepping in, seeing the price as a buying opportunity.”

Morgan Stanley economist Ted Wieseman believes that while the unusually harsh winter certainly affected the economy, it didn’t knock the recovery off the rails. Wieseman and his team’s economic view is influenced by a teammate’s research on how economies recover from crises that shows recovery typically takes around ten years. Wieseman said, “We’ve left the legacy of the recession in the rearview mirror,” but the recovery isn’t finished yet.
