Silver Futures Market News and Commentary

Precious Metals Close Lower as Safe-Haven Demand Fades

Apr Comex gold (GCJ19) on Tuesday fell back from Monday's 3-week high and closed down -7.6 (-0.57%). May silver (SIK19) consolidated below last week's 3-week high and closed -0.138 (-0.89%). Gold and silver prices on Tuesday fell on reduced safe-haven demand with the recovery in the U.S. and European stock markets. In addition, the dollar index rallied by +0.3% and put some downward pressure on metals prices. Industrial metals prices were undercut by Tuesday'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.
