Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market Report – 3/14/2011

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

  • Gold – $1,425.50  |  +$2.70
  • Silver – $35.99  |  -$0.02
  • Platinum – $1,753.00  |  -$29.70
  • Palladium – $750.20  |  -$16.30

COMMENTARY:  Gold and silver have remained relatively flat today, while platinum and palladium are down on concerns over the automobile industry.  The safe-haven demand for gold and silver is still there, Phil Streible of Lind-Waldock reports (video).  However, Japan is selling gold and converting it to cash in the wake of the recent disaster.  Continuing the recent trend of push-and-pull on gold prices, we see the sell-off in Japan pressuring prices downward, whereas the safe-haven demand pressures it upward.  Stocks are down (upward pressure on gold), but so is oil, which may ease inflation concerns (downward pressure on gold).
