Market Recap 1/28/11

This week was one of contrarian messages. On one hand, there were forces indicating that the economy had turned the corner and would continue to improve. Presidents Obama’s State of the Union Address certainly painted such a picture. There was also supporting economic data, such as Friday’s GNP report. On the other hand, news surfaced that continued to inflame concerns about the global debt crisis. Japan’s long term debt rating was downgraded by Standard & Poor’s. It is apparent that the US Unemployment Rate is not going to improve significantly anytime soon. All week long, news of rioting and societal unrest in Egypt surfaced, reaching a fever pitch in the media on Friday, driving stocks down and precious metals prices up yet again.

No matter your opinion of the President’s State of the Union Address, it was decidedly more pro-business and most definitely upbeat on the economy. It was criticized for lack of details, although President Obama did propose a five-year freeze on non-discretionary defense spending. Most analysts depict this as “spare change” and an avoidance to tackle the more serious issues like raising taxes and cutting entitlement programs. The stock market began to move up and precious metal prices moved down. Perhaps the President should have coordinated better with the Federal Open Market Committee because the afternoon after he gave his speech, they came out with a more pessimistic view of the economy. Precious metal prices immediately began to surge.

By Thursday the pendulum had swung once again. The market once again developed a taste for risk so the stock market went way up and precious metals went way down. Never mind that the applications for jobless benefits went up.

Friday began slowly with a distinct downward pressure on precious metal prices. By mid-morning, the rumblings going on all week about riots in Egypt received more serious attention and began to strike fear in the heart of the risk takers. Money began to flow out of the stock market and raced towards more safe haven investments. Gold had its biggest jump in 12 weeks.

Each week, APMEX will review a different bullion product for the benefit of our readers. This week, we will review the Mexican Gold Libertads.

While coin collectors all over the world have long admired the beauty of the Mexican Gold Libertad bullion coins, many people are not familiar with the love story that inspired the coin’s striking design.

According to a Pre-Columbian legend, a warrior named Popocatepetl fell in love with Iztaccihautl, a king’s daughter, and earned a tentative marriage blessing from the king, on the condition that he win a battle against a rival tribe. While the battle delayed the warrior, a rival suitor started a rumor that Popocatepetl had been killed in the battle, and the fair maiden died of a broken heart.

Upon finally returning as the victor from the battle, Popocatepetl discovered the fate of his lover and buried her on top of a mountain range that assumed the shape of a sleeping lady in honor of the dead maiden. Grief-stricken, Popocatepetl climbed an adjacent mountain in order to keep eternal watch over his beloved.

To memorialize these legendary lovers, the Gold Libertad depicts a graceful angel and Popocatepetl and Iztaccihautl, the two iconic Mexican mountain peaks named after the lovers, on its obverse. Moreover, the Gold Libertad, also known as an “Gold Angels,” further celebrates the Mexican heritage on its reverse by featuring the Mexican Coat of Arms symbol of an eagle perched on a cactus, clutching a serpent in its beak.

Showcasing the design of the angel and the “Lovers’ Peaks” since 1991, the Libertad not only radiates beauty, but also preserves a Mexican legend of love and romance. A gem for collectors and investors alike, this gold coin contains 99.9% fine gold and is available in convenient 1/20 oz., 1/10 oz., 1/4 oz., 1/2 oz., and 1 oz. weights. For its reflection of Mexican tradition and its gold value, the Libertad is a gold coin worth adding to any coin collection.

Market Recap 1/21/11

Chinese President Hu Jintao’s visit to Washington was the story of the week. Although expectations were not high as to any big policy announcements, it represents the continued efforts by both countries to improve relationships. Of course, the US wants China to allow the Yuan to appreciate relative to other global currencies, while China is comfortable with the status quo.

On Tuesday, all precious metal prices received a boost when higher than expected inflation data was reported from the UK. US debt concerns surfaced again when Neel Kashkari, former head of the $700 billion TARP program said, “our debt is starting to get away from us.” Global and domestic confidence in US Treasuries could fall dramatically if the Fed keeps printing money to buy bonds.

Precious metal prices are up for the third day in a row as a result of a weak dollar and increased demand out of Asia. Platinum hit a 30-month high and Palladium continues to go up as well. These two metals have important industrial applications and therefore they are rising on the improving economics.

After three days of moving up, profit takers moved in and precious metal prices retreated. There were no major news stories other than the daily cycles where traders move in and out. Investors with a long term view stepped in and bought on the dips. Platinum rebounded quickly especially on the announcement that China imported 40% more platinum in 2010 than they did in 2009.

Market Recap 1/14/11

Precious metals traded flat at the beginning of the week and then started to make a recovery on the scare of the Portugal and Spain bailout debt crises. Portugal had a “make or break” debt auction Wednesday, and Spain followed suit on Thursday. Stock markets then began to find higher ground as earnings season’s optimism was buoyed by the news of Japan and China each purchasing a portion of the European debt. Both auctions turned out to be quite successful and the two countries were not forced to raise their rates. This brought gains to the Euro against the U.S. dollar, helping Gold slightly. However, this was still not enough to keep the price up, as people begin to feel less tension about the imminence of the Euro bailouts.

China raised their reserve requirements for lenders which allowed the dollar to rebound against a basket of six other currencies.  Since Gold carries a negative correlation to the dollar typically, prices are down on that news. However, most analysts agree that the physical demand for Gold in Asia will still underpin the precious metal. As Gold gets a lot of attention in the precious metals market, you might be interested in an article Marketwatch has that gives five reasons Silver may be an even better investment than Gold.

The U.S. economy is getting a small rebound from the housing industry, which could be suppressing the Gold price as well. Other experts are saying we won’t see recovery until the end of 2012. The economy is still in a weakened state and when expected gains aren’t realized, the reaction usually favors the price of Gold as people return to the safe-haven it provides.

According to London-based GFMS, mine production increased by 94 million ounces last year alone, which followed a 6% increase in 2009 (the biggest gain in one year in more than a decade). GFMS is predicting another increase of more than 6% in the first half of 2011 alone. However, GFMS also says that in the longer term, the industry is mining lower grades and making fewer discoveries than in the previous years. They also pointed out that there is rising production from regions such as China and West Africa, making up for the lower production in South Africa and Peru (South Africa used to be the world’s largest producer of gold but now lags behind China, Australia and the U.S.).

With all of these factors likely contributing to the consolidation in Gold prices, this may be an opportune time to capitalize and diversify your portfolio. Platinum and Palladium pose interesting options to further diversify as well, continuing the theme of diversification, even within an asset class. Palladium, in particular this week, hit its highest price point since March of 2001.

Market Recap 12/3/10

International uncertainty has led to an increase in the price of precious metals. The European Union is expected to pass a measure increasing regulation on position limits. Also driving up interest in metals is information claiming Japan has increased importation of Gold by 500 percent over 2009 figures.

The dollar is down 1% against foreign currency amid current discussions on tax cuts and unexpected increases in unemployment. On the home front, home sales have grown 10% since September, but a staggering 436,000 unemployment figure quelled much of the excitement.

Precious metals rose this week with some making significant gains. Gold is up over 3%, while Silver jumped an impressive 6.5%. With an eye towards the future, the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) has increased its Gold price forecast to $1,600.00 per Troy Ounce in 2011 and to $1,700.00 per Troy Ounce in 2012.

Each week, APMEX will review a different bullion product for the benefit of our readers. This week, we will review the 5 oz. America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins.

Following the popularity of the Statehood Quarters, the U.S. Mint chose national parks from across the nation to adorn the reverse of the new America the Beautiful Quarters. In correlation with these quarters, the U.S. Mint has produced matching 5 oz. Silver coins. The first five coins in this series are to be released through authorized vendors on December 6, 2010.

The release of these coins has been highly anticipated and was pushed back several times from the U.S. Mint. These delays have driven the popularity of this series through the roof before the designs, mintages, or release dates were revealed. We now know the designs will mirror the quarters and the mintage rates are maxed out at 33,000 units per design.

The five designs to be released next week are Hot Springs (Arkansas), Yellowstone (Wyoming), Yosemite (California), Grand Canyon (Arizona), and Mount Hood (Oregon).

Market Recap 11/12/10

The Dow Jones Industrial Average ended the day down more than 90 points, as the market reacted to the threat of rising interest rates in China. Investors locked-in their profits and all the major indexes fell accordingly. The Canadian market faced a similar downward situation, also due to China fears.

US Consumers gained confidence in the economy for the first time in three months. The Reuters/University of Michigan survey of consumer sentiment rose to 69.3, still lower than the 5-year average of 88.9, which ended in December of 2007, when this current recessionary period began. Retailers hope that this consumer sentiment holds as we head into the holiday buying season.

Precious metal prices had a roller-coaster of a week! Gold started this week at the $1,394.00 level, peaked at an all-time high on Tuesday of $1,424.60, and then ended the week just under $1,370.00. Silver shared a similar fate also peaking at a 30-year high on Tuesday of $29.35 per Troy Ounce. Obviously, some short-term investors locked-in some of their profits. Many long-term investors see the current weakness only as a strong buying opportunity.

Market Recap 11/5/10

The Dow Jones Industrial Average ended the day up just over 9 points, as the market failed to continue its strong momentum this week. Friday’s activity was not reflective of the impressive showing throughout the week based on the Federal Reserve Bank’s plan to boost the economy with $600 billion worth of Government Bond purchases.  But even a stronger than expected jobs report, adding 151,000 jobs in October, couldn’t rally the Market higher on Friday.

The Federal Reserve’s plan to purchase Government Bonds drove the 30-year bond higher but also drove the two-year and five-year notes to record lows. The Federal Open Market Committee said that the Fed will expand purchases at the rate of about $75 Billion a month through June 2011.

Precious metal prices continued to climb higher and higher again this week. Gold and Silver both neared important milestones. Gold hit an historic high of $1,398.90 on Friday, while Silver reached a 30-year high of $26.94. Gold had hit 17 new highs over the last five weeks based, at first, on speculation about the Fed’s actions and then on the actual announcement. What will be the newest predictions on the prices of these precious metals now, given their new highs? 

Gold:

Market Recap 9/10/10

The Dow Jones Industrial Average edged up slightly today, ending nearly one-half of one percent higher, as investors regained a bit of optimism about the economy. Although trading was very light, this move continued the progress made over the last two weeks. Some of the optimism in the marketplace can be attributed to the decrease in jobless benefits claims.

The Labor Department announced that initial jobless claims have dropped by 27,000 to 451,000 new claims for the week ending September 4th. The U.S. Dollar fell against most foreign currencies, while the Canadian Dollar touched a three-week high on speculation that their central bank will increase borrowing costs.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) announced the sale of 10 Metric Tons of gold to the Bangladesh Bank, the central bank of that nation. This sale is part of the 403.3 metric tons approved for sale by the IMF Executive Board. The nations of India, Mauritius, and Sri Lanka have already made purchases from the IMF as part of these 403.3 metric tons. A Senior Trader at the Korea Exchange Bank Futures Company was quoted as saying, “[the transaction] will push gold higher as central bank purchases have traditionally been a major factor fueling the price. Central banks want to diversify their reserves because of the unstable dollar and we may see more buying down the road.”

Further IMF sales and the hope that India’s fall wedding and festival season will inspire a dramatic upswing in consumer purchases of gold jewelry may possibly move gold prices higher due to increased demand.
