2024-05-22 07:27:48

Kitco News) - Gold and silver prices are lower in midday U.S. trading Tuesday, following recent solid gains that saw gold hit a record high of $2,454.20 an ounce, basis June Comex futures on Monday, and silver hit an 11-year high of $32.75 an ounce, basis July Comex futures. Profit-taking from the shorter-term futures traders is featured today, which is not unusual. Bulls still have the solid near-term technical advantage in both precious metals markets, with no early chart clues that market tops are close at hand. June gold was last down $14.30 at $2,424.00. July silver was last down $0.536 at $31.90.

U.S. stock indexes are just slightly higher at midday. There has been no fresh, markets-moving news or economic data so far this week, but the pace picks up the rest of the week.

The key outside markets today see the U.S. dollar index slightly higher. Nymex crude oil prices are down and trading around $78.50 a barrel. The yield on the benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury note is fetching 4.41%.
