Futures Market Commentary


Feb Comex gold (GCG19) on Monday closed down -3.2 (-0.26%) and Mar Comex silver (SIH19) closed down -0.091 (-0.62%). Feb gold on Monday retreated from a fresh 4-1/2 month high as a rally in the dollar index to a 1-week high weighed on metals prices. A slide in global equity markets had boosted safe-haven demand for precious metals and pushed Feb gold up to a 4-1/2 month high before dollar strength knocked prices lower. Another negative for gold was a decrease in inflation expectations after the 10-year T-note breakeven inflation expectations rate dropped to a 1-year low, which curbs demand for gold as an inflation hedge. Silver also fell back on signs of weaker global demand for industrial metals after China Nov exports rose +5.4% y/y, weaker than expectations of +9.4% y/y and the slowest pace of increase in 8 months, and after China Nov imports rose +3.0% y/y, well below expectations of +14.0% y/y and the slowest pace of increase in 2 years. Demand concerns have also spurred fund selling of silver as long silver positions in ETFs fell to a 5-1/4 month low Friday of 525.17 mln troy ounces.
