Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 5/14/2014


Precious Metals prices are higher across the board in early-morning trading, with Gold finding surprising support from the Platinum price. The 16-week strike at South African Platinum mines has supported that metal’s price lately, and now it’s lending support to Gold. Analysts at Japanese financial holding company Nomura said in a note that “the potential for this strike to linger on as the inflexibility of the unions remains deeply entrenched. Although the majority of workers appear to want to return to work, the inability for adequate security to be provided is likely to erode the restart timeliness further. The impact from stockpiles having been reduced will likely start to affect the market going forward.”

U.S. stock futures were slightly lower in premarket trade, but optimism hasn’t faded for most analysts. Stephen Pope, managing partner at Spotlight Ideas, said, “We are roughly 30 points above the 50-day moving average. We would need a large technical fall points-wise in the S&P to start to be worried.” Pope also noted that equities don’t have a big reason to break down outside of increasing tensions in Ukraine or a eurozone meltdown.
