Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market Report – 4/4/2011

GEOPOLTICAL TENSIONS PUSH GOLD & SILVER HIGHER - Gold and silver prices are rising as stock prices experience resistance due to the geopolitical uncertainties across the globe. With the U.S. dollar weakening, due primarily to zero interest rates in the United States and the Fed QE2 monetary policies, other currencies are becoming more attractive.  Robert Lynch, head of currency strategy for HSBC, “Foreign investors are holding a great deal of our debt, and they may become concerned about the United States’ ability to repay, in a way that will potentially weigh on the dollar this year.”

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

  • Gold price - $1,434.40 (up $5.50)
  • Silver price - $38.55 (up 75 cents)
  • Platinum price - $1,785.80 (up $10.20)
  • Palladium price - $784.50 (up $8.50)
