Morning Gold & Silver Market Report – 7/2/2014


The Gold price remained near a three-year high in early-morning trading thanks to a weak U.S. dollar, which is conversely near a two-month low. Macquarie analyst Matthew Turner said, “Markets in recent weeks have interpreted most of the new information on the U.S. economy as being Gold positive — in particular that there are early signs of inflationary pressures building up yet the Federal Reserve says it is unconcerned. Gold bulls dream about a scenario in which the Fed continues to keep interest rates low even as inflation is rising, and while it is not likely that is going to happen, just the slightest possibility of it has been enough to generate some interest back in Gold.”

U.S. stock futures are pointing to a higher open for Wall Street after the Automatic Data Processing jobs report showed an increase of 281,000 jobs in June. Investors will also keep a close eye on Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, who is scheduled to speak at the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) headquarters this morning. Following that, she will meet with IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde.
