Silver Futures Market News and Commentary


Feb Comex gold (GCG19) on Tuesday closed down -2.2 (-0.18%) and Mar Comex silver (SIH19) closed up +0.023 (+0.16%). Feb gold erased an early rally and closed lower after the dollar index rallied to a 4-week high. Gold prices were pressured further after inflation expectations declined as the 10-year T-note breakeven inflation expectations rate tumbled to a 13-3/4 month low, which curbs demand for gold as an inflation hedge. Gold still has support from the recent turmoil in global equity markets that boosted demand for gold as a store of wealth after long gold positions in ETFs on Monday rose to a 4-1/4 month high. Mar silver raced up to a 1-month high Tuesday on speculation that industrial metals demand will improve on a report that China is moving toward cutting tariffs on cars made in the U.S. to 15% from the current 40%. On the negative side for silver, long silver positions in ETFs fell to a 5-1/4 month low Monday.
