Precious Metals Close Little Changed as a Rally in Stocks Reduces Safe-Haven Demand

Dec Comex gold (GCZ19) on Wednesday closed unchanged, and Sep silver (SIU19) closed up +0.003 (+0.02%). Metals prices settled little changed Wednesday as a rally in equities reduced safe-haven demand for precious metals. Higher global government bond yields on Wednesday also undercut gold prices as the higher yields weigh on demand for gold as a store of value, although political turmoil in Italy and ongoing Brexit concerns are limiting losses in gold. Wednesday's U.S. economic data was supportive for silver prices after Jul existing home sales rose +2.5% to a 5-month high of 5.42 million, slightly stronger than expectations of +2.5% to 5.40 million, which is supportive for industrial metals demand. Wednesday's minutes of the Jul 30-31 FOMC meeting were negative for gold as the minutes said that last month's Fed rate cut was a mid-cycle adjustment and not the start of an extended easing cycle. Ongoing trade and geopolitical tensions, along with dovish central bank expectations, have sparked fund buying of precious metals as long gold positions in ETFs rose to a 6-1/4 year high Tuesday and long silver positions in ETFs rose to a new record high Tuesday.
