A weaker dollar and lower 10-year bond yields across the globe helping gold stay in positive territory.
The Gold ETF continues to see redemptions as financial advisors are reporting that most clients believe the equity market still has upside potential when and if the Dow reaches 20,000.
Wall Street gold traders still tell me they are content by staying short, as they believe our support levels of $1,132 in the February gold futures contract and $16.06 in the March silver futures contract will be a distant memory as we start 2017.
Kudos to my technical friends who nailed the next level of support yesterday in the March silver futures contract at $15.68 as the low yesterday around 9 am was $15.675. That’s amazing as that’s exactly where the Silver market sell off stopped.
Eurozone gold traders tell me all is winding down as we approach the holidays. They reported good physical demand was seen in the early part of December, but as of yesterday the physical market really got quiet.
Some domestic refiners still trying to move product before year-end are not finding too many interested buyers with the holiday week approaching.
Unless something out of the ordinary occurs, most dealers I spoke with expect a quiet ending in our metal markets thru year end.
Have a wonderful Wednesday.
