Exploring Gold and Silver Market Updates

Welcome to the Ploutos Gold and Silver LLC blog, your source for staying informed about the ever-changing gold and silver market. In this post, we’ll delve into recent developments and insights that can shape your investment decisions.

Gold’s Resilience Amidst Interest Rate Discussions

Even amidst discussions about interest rates, the gold market remains steadfast. Notable figures like Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell and European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde have made statements suggesting higher interest rates. However, the market appears to be undeterred, possibly bolstered by the anticipation of weak economic reports.

Precious Metal Performance and Key Indicators

Front-month gold futures displayed a 1.2% rally last week, settling at $1,939.90 an ounce on Comex. While the December contract experienced a slight decline of 0.4% on Friday, overall market performance is noteworthy. It’s important to note that bullion experienced a decline of 3.5% in August after a 4.1% rise in July and a 2.7% drop in June. In the first half of the year, gold gained 5.7% after experiencing a $2.40 fall in 2022. Currently, the December contract is trading at $1,943.60, and the spot price stands at $1,917.50.

Powell, Lagarde, and Bank of England Deputy Governor Ben Broadbent have all hinted at the possibility of further interest rate hikes. Since March 2022, the Fed has increased rates by 5.25 percentage points to curb inflation. The sentiment among investors, as tracked by the CME FedWatch Tool, suggests that approximately 80.5% of investors predict the Fed will maintain the federal funds rate between 5.25% and 5.50% in September. Only 19.5% expect a 25 basis point increase.

However, the economy’s health and the labor market’s performance are likely to be key drivers of the Fed’s future decisions.

Silver, Palladium, and Platinum Insights

Front-month silver futures surged by an impressive 6.6% last week, settling at $24.58 an ounce on Comex. Despite experiencing a 1.6% decline this month, silver showed strong gains of 8.5% in July after a 2.4% drop in June. In the first half of the year, silver retreated by 4.2% following a 3% rise in 2022. Currently, the December contract is up by $0.013 (-0.05%) at $24.570, and the spot price is $24.22.

Spot palladium experienced a decline of 2.5% last week, closing at $1,241.00 an ounce, with a further 0.9% drop on Friday. Palladium’s performance in August saw a 4.3% decline following a 3.6% rise in July and a 9.5% drop in June. Notably, palladium experienced a significant decline of 31% in the first half of the year after losing 5.7% in 2022. The current spot price is up by $22.20 an ounce, reaching $1,263.00.

Spot platinum, however, demonstrated strength with a 3.6% rise last week, reaching $951.40 after a 0.5% increase on Friday. Despite a 0.7% decline this month, platinum gained 5.2% in July, offsetting a 9.3% drop in June. The first half of the year saw a significant drop of 15% after a robust surge of 10% in 2022. The current spot price is up by $9.60 an ounce, reaching $959.00.

Niko is fantastic. Bought some maples, krugerrands, and cook island silver 1 ounce coins which were amazing. When I picked them up they were straight from the mint. Everything was in pristine condition. Given the high demand lately it took a couple weeks for everything to come in, but it was well worth the wait. Prices were fair and Niko is a great guy to talk to. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to buy physical bullion.

I’ve always wanted to purchase precious metals and wanting to support a localbusiness a friend recommended Ploutos.I placed my first order with Niko last December of 2021 as a stocking stuffer for my kids. My order was placed online and just a few days later my order had arrived, nicely packaged with a bow!I caught the itch and months later I wanted to make another purchase. This time it was a bigger order of silver rounds, the price was competitive and because I’m not to far, Niko hand delivered my order the very next day!His prices are competitive and his customer service is top notch.If you have any questions, Niko knows his stuff.Since I’ve done business with Niko and Ploutos, I have recommended his services to a few other friends and they all agree that Ploutos is legit.If you have any hesitation, a phone call with Niko will put your mind at ease.
