Silver Futures Market News and Commentary

Precious Metals Rally on Dollar Weakness and Expectations for a Dovish FOMC Meeting

Apr Comex gold (GCJ19) this morning is up +8.2 (+0.63%) and May silver (SIK19) is up +0.093 (+0.11%). Precious metals are moving higher today on the back of a weak dollar as the dollar index dropped to a 2-week low. Expectations for the Fed to reinforce its dovish holding-pattern rate-stance at Wednesday's conclusion of the 2-day FOMC meeting has undercut the dollar and boosted precious metals prices. Fund buying of metals has increased as long gold positions in ETFs rose to a 2-week high Monday and long silver positions in ETFs climbed to a 3-week high. Another supportive factor for gold is an increase in inflation expectations that may boost demand for gold as an inflation hedge after the 10-year T-note breakeven inflation rate rose to a 3-1/2 month high today. On the negative side is the rally in the S&P 500 today to a fresh 5-1/4 month high, which reduces the safe-haven demand for precious metals. A bearish factor for silver prices was the +0.1% increase in today's U.S. Jan factory orders report, weaker than expectations of +0.3% and negative for industrial metals demand.
