In this week’s market report for precious metals, we see gold, silver and platinum down with palladium making gains. The U.S. dollar swung dramatically upward after the presidential election, causing pressure on the gold market. However, threats to the world economy became evident this week with the changes happening in the Italian government. Investor began moving toward bonds and gold toward the end of this period.
While the national optimism concerning currency may be associated with the perception that President-elect Trump’s experience in business will have a beneficial effect on the economy, it may also be a temporary effect. Trump’s actions after his January inauguration will be a stronger determinant in the prosperity of the U.S. and world economies.
The best solution may be to take a measured approach to precious metals until the market settles down, investing in precious metals at normal levels rather than increasing investments or on the other hand moving them into other markets. However, all four precious metals saw what might be the beginning of an uptick in prices on the 28th.
