Silver Futures Market News and Commentary

Precious Metals Consolidate Above Tuesday's 4-month Lows

Jun Comex gold (GCM19) this morning is up by +0.7 (+0.05%) and May silver (SIK19) is up by +0.024 (+0.16%). Precious metals are slightly higher this morning as they consolidate recent losses. Jun gold tumbled to a 4-month low Tuesday and May silver slumped to a 4-1/4 month low on strength in the dollar and in stock prices. A rally in the dollar index to a 1-3/4 year high Tuesday pressured metals prices along with a rally in the S&P 500 to a new 6-1/2 month high. Long liquidation of precious metals has picked up over the last week on strength in stock prices, which curbs safe-haven demand for precious metals. Long gold positions in ETFs fell to a 3-1/2 month low Tuesday and long silver positions in ETFs fell to a 5-week low last Wednesday. Precious metals still have support on increased tensions between the U.S. and Iran after a senior Iranian military official on Monday warned that Iran will close the Strait of Hormuz, a waterway vital for crude exports from the Middle East, if Iran is prevented from exporting crude. The U.S. on Monday announced that it will not renew waivers that let countries buy Iranian crude without facing U.S. sanctions.
