Silver Futures Market News and Commentary

Precious Metals Close Higher on Dovish Comments from ECB President Draghi

Aug Comex gold (GCQ19) on Tuesday closed up +7.8 (+0.58%) and July silver closed up +0.164 (+1.11%). Metals prices moved higher Tuesday on the outlook for the ECB to expand stimulus measures after ECB President Draghi said Tuesday that "additional stimulus will be required" if the economic outlook doesn't improve. Also, heightened U.S./Iran tensions continue to fuel safe-haven buying of precious metals after the U.S. ordered another 1,000 troops to the Middle East on Monday. Metals prices fell back from their best levels Tuesday after the S&P 500 jumped to a 6-week high when President Trump said he had a "very good" phone conversation with Chinese President Xi Jinping and that he will hold an "extended meeting" with him at the G-20 meeting next week in Osaka, Japan. Ongoing trade and geopolitical tensions, along with stock market volatility, have sparked fund buying of precious metals as long gold positions in ETFs rose to a 3-3/4 month high on Monday and long silver positions in ETFs rose to a 1-month high on Monday.
