Gold & Silver Market 8-8-2015

Last week was no better for precious metals than the one before; although there wasn’t much movement Friday to Friday in the key gold and silver markets we did see some losses across the platinum group. The general outlook is still negative, and this week’s performance deserves some close attention. Looking at gold, there really […]

Gold & Silver Market 8-3-2015

Last week turned out to be another mixed one for precious metals, with gold and silver stabilizing but losses in the platinum group. In general it wasn’t a good week, but there are some things to be optimistic about. Gold didn’t manage to rebound, but its descent did slow dramatically. It actually managed to gain […]

Gold & Silver Market 7-27-2015

Overall last week was fairly positive for precious metals, but everything was overshadowed by the beating gold took from the markets. A coincidence of factors led to a sharp fall in the headline price, and took most of the investing media’s attention, which is understandable. However silver suffered much less and across the platinum group […]

Gold & Silver Market 7-19-2015

Once again we saw prices fall across most of the precious metals sector, with one big exception – yes, we were completely wrong about rhodium – and while some of it can be put down to the generally unsettled financial situation there are worrying signs for silver. If you’re looking at gold or the platinum […]

Gold & Silver Market 7-11-2015

We saw losses almost right across the precious metal market last week, with the platinum group looking to take the biggest hit, but it’s a pretty confused picture overall. On the surface it looks as if modest gains in equities could be responsible but it’s all complicated by general market nervousness as the Greek debt […]

Gold & Silver Market 7-5-2015

Last week was a very mixed one for precious metals with gold and silver down, but some gains in the platinum group. The whole period was overshadowed by the accelerating crisis in Europe, where Greece became the first developed nation to default on an IMF loan and now looks likely to be pushed out of […]

Gold & Silver Market 6-27-2015

Last week was another bad one for the precious metal sector. Every major metal fell sharply except platinum, with gold and silver both coming off the upward trend they’d been on for the previous couple of weeks and dropping back to where they were at the start of June. At the same time US equities […]

Gold & Silver Market 6-21-2015

Last week was a mixed one for the precious metals market, with gold and silver modestly up and the platinum group all down. There hasn’t been any change in demand from industry so it looks like the current unsettled global economy is driving up demand for silver and gold in their traditional role as safe […]

It’s been another bad week for precious metals, with only gold managing to avoid a fall in price. Why? Nobody’s really sure. The Dow Jones rose slightly overall but ended the week on a sharp downward slope; the FTSE 100 was similar. Oil isn’t going anywhere. US industrial demand is strong, and plenty of investors […]

Gold & Silver Market 6-8-2015

Last week was again disappointing for precious metals with significant falls right across the sector. Silver and some of the platinum group saw the heaviest losses but none of the key prices escaped, which is always disturbing – especially when there’s no rise in equity values to explain it. Instead it looks like the main […]

Gold & Silver Market 5-31-2015

Last week wasn’t a great one for precious metals, with all five of the main prices heading down. Gold and silver rallied midweek but in the platinum group that didn’t happen. This across the board downturn tied in with a drop in US share prices and revised quarter one growth figures that showed the American […]

Gold & Silver Market 5-24-2015

Last week saw prices fall across the preciou smetals sector, with all the major benchmarks losing value except rhodium. It’s not all bad news though. Only palladium is below where it was two weeks ago, and then only fractionally. Most of the losses happened early in the week and by Wednesday prices were stabilizing, with […]

Gold & Silver Market 5-17-2015

Last week was a mixed one for precious metals but overall we’d say it was a positive one, with significant price increases for gold and silver and, apart from rhodium, some promising activity in the platinum group as well. Conditions across other markets have been mixed, with equities falling through Wednesday then rising again, while […]

Gold & Silver Market 5-10-2015

Last week was good overall for precious metals; while rhodium fell slightly all the others made gains. Some of them were small but palladium had a reasonably good week, and some positive trends seem to be emerging from the earlier confusion. There’s a lot of volatility in other markets right now, but metals seem to […]

Gold & Silver Market 5-4-2015

A lot of discussion among metals traders last week was about gold, which fell spectacularly from Monday through to Friday, but in fact it was a fairly good week overall. Most prices managed to climb slightly and a lot of the damage done the previous period was reversed. Faltering oil prices may have helped this, […]
