Precious Metals Rally on Dovish Central Bank News and a Weak Dollar

Apr Comex gold (GCJ19) on Tuesday closed up +22.7 (+1.72%) and March silver (SIH19) closed up +0.224 (+1.42%). Precious metals rallied Tuesday with Apr gold at a 9-3/4 month high and Mar silver at a 2-week high. A -0.4% decline in the dollar index to a 1-1/2 week low on Tuesday lifted precious metals prices along with signs that global central banks may add to their easing measures, which increased demand for gold as a store of wealth. BOJ Governor Kuroda on Tuesday said the BOJ would consider additional monetary easing if required and ECB Chief Economist Praet said "if the Eurozone economy were to slow more sharply, the ECB could adapt its forward guidance on interest rates, and this could be complemented by other measures." Another positive for silver was Tuesday's news that the Feb NAHB housing market index rose +4 to a 4-month high of 62, stronger than expectations of +1 to 59, which was positive for industrial metals demand. Fund buying of gold is a bullish factor as global geopolitical concerns and stock market volatility have fueled demand for gold as a store of wealth after long gold positions in ETFs rose to a 5-3/4 year high on Jan 31.
