Silver Futures Market News and Commentary

Precious Metals are Mixed on Dollar Strength and Weak Industrial Metals Demand

Apr Comex gold (GCJ19) this morning is up +3.7 (+0.28%) and May silver (SIK19) is down -0.032 (-0.21%). Metals prices are mixed this morning as a slump in stock prices has boosted the safe-haven demand for gold. However, a rally in the dollar index today to a 1-week high is limiting the upside in gold prices, while global economic concerns are weighing on silver prices. The U.S. Mar Markit manufacturing PMI unexpectedly fell -0.5 to 52.5, weaker than expectations of +0.5 to 53.5 and the weakest pace of expansion in 1-3/4 years. The Eurozone Mar Markit manufacturing PMI unexpectedly fell -1.7 to 47.6, weaker than expectations of +0.2 to 49.5 and the steepest pace of contraction in 5-3/4 years. The weaker manufacturing activity is bearish for industrial metals demand, including silver. Silver prices recovered from their worst levels today after U.S. Feb existing home sales jumped +11.8% to a 1-year high of 5.51 million, stronger than expectations of +3.2% to 5.10 million. Also, fund buying of metals has picked up after long silver positions in ETFs climbed to a 1-month high Wednesday and long gold positions in ETFs rose to a 3-week high Monday. Gold still has support from Wednesday's dovish FOMC meeting where the Fed cut its Fed-dot median forecast to zero rate hikes in 2019 from two hikes.
