Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 6/19/2014


A lower U.S. dollar is contributing to Precious Metals gains this morning, with Gold and Silver prices over one percent higher. Mitsubishi Corp analyst Jonathan Butler said, “…[I]n the short term, Gold is still very much headline-driven, with what's happening in Iraq, as far as safe-haven buying is concerned.” The geopolitical tensions in Iraq and Ukraine have driven oil prices to nine-month highs, and Gold is following suit.

The weekly jobless claims report had little impact on Precious Metals, though it did allow U.S. stock futures to add to small gains. The report showed a return near post-recession lows at 312,000, slightly higher than expected. After Wednesday’s Federal Reserve comments on managing inflation and cutting down on economic stimulus, Valutrades analyst Joao Monteiro said, “What’s more, the fact that China is now expected to hit the 7.5% growth target for the year is simply adding to the downside — if Beijing can avoid the hard landing, then there’s no need for any generous stimulus measures.”
