Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 6/17/2014


Gold and silver prices are falling as the world sees less risk in the Middle East. However, news this morning that is sending stock prices to the red, may provide support for gold and silver. The US housing starts and building permits fell more than expected in May bringing doubts to how swiftly housing might recover. New home starts were down 6.5 percent. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen has expressed that a slow housing recovery could undermine the recovering economy. More news driving down stocks was the big jump up in consumer prices. Consumer prices had their largest increase in over a year.

Gold and silver prices are down as fear abates in the Middle East, yet last night President Obama notified House and Senate leaders that he is sending in up to 275 troops to provide support and security for US staff and Security in Baghdad. Although the deployment of ground troops has been rules out, the US has signaled its willingness to reengage in Iraq.
