Precious Metals Lower as Safe-Haven Demand Fades

Apr Comex gold (GCJ19) today is down -5.2 (-0.39%) and May silver (SIK19) is down -0.072 (-0.46%). Gold and silver prices are lower today on reduced safe-haven demand with today's recovery in the U.S. and European stock markets. In addition, the dollar index is slightly higher by +0.1%. Precious metals are also seeing some downward pressure from slightly higher U.S. interest rates with the June 10-year T-note futures contract down -9 ticks and 2-year T-note futures down -2 ticks. Industrial metals prices were undercut by this morning's news that U.S. Feb housing starts fell by -8.7% to 1.162 million units, weaker than expectations for a -1.6% decline. On the positive side, there is continued safe-haven demand for precious metals on the Brexit situation after the UK Parliament on Monday defied Prime Minister May and voted to hold non-binding Brexit Plan B votes on Wednesday. Also, fund buying of metals has picked up with long gold positions in ETFs rising to a 3-1/2 week high on Monday. Silver positions in ETFs last Friday matched the recent 2-1/4 month high but then fell back on Monday.
