Gold Remains Resilient On Safe Haven Buying

Gold and Silver finished the week strong as world events have investors looking for alternative “safe haven” investments. After China reported its first monthly trade deficit in 11 months yesterday which certainly helped fuel the profit taking sell-off in anticipation of future interest rate hikes by China’s central bank to combat the countries historically high inflation. However, it is my belief that global investors are looking at the entire global picture and have once again chose the precious metals as their investment choice.

Savvier investors are using the Gold and silver markets as a hedge against higher energy prices as well as safe haven buying as geo-political tensions in the Middle-east and North Africa escalate and threaten the flow of Crude oil.

Also the European union debt crisis has once again resurfaced as Moody’s downgraded both Greece and Spain’s credit rating this week. Obviously all of the above are “bullish” precious metals and the markets are reflecting that as demand is forcing prices higher…

Saif al-Islam Ghaddafi the son of Libyan leader Muammar Ghaddafi Pledged that the Libyan government will never surrender and Western Countries will lose if they support the rebel uprising. Obviously this chaos / civil war is a long way from being settled ….And meanwhile Libya is not supplying Crude oil. Stay tuned…

This week produced another all-time high in Gold. Globex April Gold traded as high as $1445.70. Also Globex May Silver traded a new 31 year high as it traded $36.73 this week, truly amazing when you consider on January the 28th Gold traded a low of $1309.10 that is a move of $136.60 in a little over 5 weeks. The Global data as well as the geo-political tensions are helping support the resiliency of the precious metals.

This week the Department of Labor reported that Initial Jobless Claims is 379,000. This was worse than the projected 376,000
