Daily Bullion Market Update 8/10/11

By Barry Stuppler – MintStateGold.com


Another day, another All-Time high for Gold.  WOW what a run, and all information is pointing to continued demand.  At 11am PDT Gold is trading at $1,776.50 per ounce, up $34.00 on very, very active trading. At this current pace, my $1,900 year end prediction looks low.  J.P. Morgan’s commodity analyst Colin Fenton was on CNBC stating he felt Gold would reach $2,500 by year end.  He feels that the gold increase is no longer just a currency and debt hedge; but he believes that the greater risk is the volatility in the world’s currency and equity markets.

There was a lot of information in yesterday’s Federal Reserve’s Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) statement that is driving these markets.  I will go into that information in great detail in next Monday’s Weekly Market Report. In the meantime, you can read the complete text of the FOMC statement at:  www.mintstategold.com/investor-education/fed_market_statement/


If you took all the gold ever mined, it would fit into two Olympic size swimming pools.

If you took $1 trillion in $1 dollar bills and stacked them on top of each other, they would reach the moon and back four times.


A little life in the Silver market this morning, but it is still not impressive. Silver is trading at $39.02, up $1.12 per ounce on heavy trading.  Demand from Asia is light with the primary focus on Gold.

Other Important news that affects precious metal prices:

China reported today that their trade surplus for July widened to $31.5 Billion
