Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market Report – 3/2/2011

At 12PM (CT) the APMEX precious metals spot prices were:

  • Gold - $1,438.20
  • Silver - $34.82
  • Platinum - $1,858.80
  • Palladium - $821.40

COMMENTARY:  Gold hit a new record high today, as stocks are losing earlier gains.  Reuters reports that stocks will likely “remain tethered to the ups and downs of oil prices, which surged as fighting in Libya intensified.”  Inflation fears also seem to be tethered to oil prices, which increases the safe-haven appeal of gold and other precious metals.  Stocks were helped earlier by the news that private employers in the U.S. added more jobs than expected last month, however, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke says that budget cuts could cost the U.S. around 200,000 jobs

Gold spot price is up $6.00 on the day.  Silver price is up $0.37.  Platinum price is up $12.70.  Palladium price is up $5.00.
