Zaner Daily Precious Metals Commentary
While the upside breakout in the dollar this morning is not large in scope, the negative impact on gold and silver prices has been extended into another session.
 
However, we suspect a large portion of yesterday's aggressive washout in gold and silver came from the significant jump in US treasury yields and further gains in US yields are possible today.
 
Not surprisingly, the jump in US rates and strengthening in the dollar was sparked by another round of solid US economic data...[MORE]

With a 10-day high in the dollar early today and a fresh new low for the move in August gold, the market briefly entered a gap left from early March starting at $1910.50 and ending at $1908.90.
 
Apparently, the gold and silver trade saw the hawkish dialogue from the US Federal Reserve chairman yesterday as more convincing than the hawkish dialogue from other major central bank leaders as money flowed toward the dollar after the conference ended for the day.
 
Nonetheless, the consensus among world central bankers was two or "more" interest rate hikes were likely ahead. With the word "more" included the US Fed President opened the door for something more than 2 minor interest rate hikes this year as previously indicated...[MORE]

In addition to a lack of classic bullish fundamental themes, gold, and silver have seen sellers emerge off a rekindling of US rate hike prospects given yesterday's very positive sweep of US scheduled data in the form of durable goods and new-home sales.

Adding to the bearish tilt this morning is a wave of hawkish commentary from a European Central Bank forum in Portugal where a long list of central bank leaders have echoed the need to "fight inflation" with further rate hikes...[MORE]

With promises of Chinese stimulus from the Chinese premier overnight gold and silver prices are showing little in the way of positive action.

While gold, silver, platinum, and palladium appeared to see flight to quality lift yesterday from the uncertainty of the military turmoil in Russia, that potential has dissipated quickly.

Certainly, if the coup attempt had gained traction and not ended so quickly, there might have been destabilization in Russia...[MORE]
