What Are Gold and Silver Prices Today?
Precious Metals: News and Analysis
While the slowdown in China remains a factor for a boost to gold, Kitco.com's Jim Wyckoff says gold's safe haven appeal is currently adding the most support to its price.
The precious metal equities post decent gains. A surprise withdrawal from GLD, but no change in SLV. The U.S. Mint has a tiny sales report. Decent in/out movement in gold---and more big in/out movement in silver at the Comex-approved depositories on Tuesday.
Gold on Wednesday rose as much as $22 as the Ukraine crisis and concerns of a Chinese economic slowdown provide gold luster as a safe haven investment.
Precious metal stocks finish mixed. No changes in either GLD or SLV. Large drop in SLV short interest. More big silver eagle sales from the U.S. Mint. A decent withdrawal in gold from the Comex-approved depositories on Monday---and big in/out movement in silver once again.
Low volumes, especially in options trading, suggest many traders are not too certain the crisis in Ukraine worsens, but not confident to bet against an unexpected clash.
