Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market Report – 4/5/2011


Oil prices jumped to a fresh 2 ½ year high today, reaching $122/barrel; silver jumped to over $39/ounce (a 31-year high); gold hit over $1,450/ounce (a record high). “The whole commodity complex seems to be on the boil again, with precious metals, many of the base metals, and some of the agricultural (like corn), all hitting record or recent highs,” said Edward Meir at MF Global in a note.

The unrest in the Middle East and Africa seems to be outweighing the effects of China’s latest interest rate hike. However, on Thursday the European Central Bank is expected to announce a rate increase and this may send precious metals prices up yet again on inflation fears. “You get a knee-jerk reaction, silver might trade down and then the fear of inflation is going to bring those buyers back into silver, “ said Anthony Neglia of Tower Trading.

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

  • Gold - $1,453.50 (Up $20.50 on the day)
  • Silver - $39.24 (Up $0.68)
  • Platinum - $1,798.00 (Up $12.00)
  • Palladium - $793.90 (Up $8.50)
