Gold And Silver Prices Underpinned By Geopolitical Turmoil

Los Angeles CA, (Tangible Investments) - by James O’Dell - Gold and Silver prices are off slightly on Monday with Gold trading at $1,305.10 an ounce and Silver at $20.70 an ounce, as investors await the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday, second-quarter GDP data on Wednesday, and the non-farm payrolls report will wind out a very busy week for Gold.
 
Precious metals prices rebounded sharply last week after Gold soared $15.35 or 1.19 percent to finish the week at $1,308.55 an ounce, while Silver added $0.36 or 1.76 percent to end the week at $20.40 an ounce, as the Gold/Silver ratio fell to 63.03.
 
The week began with Russia's President Putin facing intense pressure to halt Russian involvement in the Ukraine crisis, after more evidence surfaced that Russian backed rebels in the Donetsk region of Ukraine used a Russian made BUK rocket launcher to shoot down the Malaysian Airlines passenger jet on July 17, killing everyone onboard.
 
In Israel, the air and ground assault on the Gaza Strip continued as U.S. Secretary of State Kerry held talks to seek a halt to the shelling that has claimed more than 1000 Palestinian and 40 Israeli lives.
 
Deepening geopolitical unrest in the Middle East and Ukraine has helped Gold rebound 8.7 percent this year while bolstering investor demand for safe-haven assets. When it comes to precious metals, "I have argued again and again that investors should hold some assets in precious metals as an alternative to cash," says Marc Faber of the Gloom, Boom & Doom Report. With rates near zero and inflation on the rise, paper money isn't worth much, he added.
 
The IMF lowered its forecast for U.S. growth in 2014 to 1.7 percent from the 2 percent it predicted in June, saying the slowdown will prolong the recovery in the labor market. The IMF cites the contraction in the first quarter for its outlook, but left its 2015 forecast unchanged at 3 percent, which may be overly optimistic since it would be the fastest expansion since 2005.
 
Ed Moy, former U.S. Mint director, says the weak recovery has contributed to the United States’ "weak hand in foreign policy," and that in turn has created an opportunity for the rest of the world. The result has been China's call for a de -Americanized world and “the introduction of a new international reserve currency that is to be created to replace the dominant U.S. dollar.”
