$GLD and $SLV Prices as of July 22 2019 @moneymetals

July 22, 2019 — Metals prices rose last week as investors continue to reposition for the coming reversal in monetary policy.

The FOMC meets at the end of the month and a rate cut is a near certainty. Officials may even drop the Fed funds rate by 50 basis points, which would be double the size of the moves seen in recent years.

Silver finally played some catch up to gold. It gained a whopping $1 for the week, despite losing some ground on Friday. The gold/silver ratio dropped from almost 93 to about 87.6. Metals investors were encouraged to see silver confirm gold’s recent move higher.

One possible fly in the ointment for gold bugs is the growing open interest in the futures markets. The bullion banks are taking the short side of the bet from speculative longs looking to trade.

Big institutions that hold outsized positions aren’t in the habit of losing money. Absent an overwhelming influx of specs, prices are likely to correct at some point. However, both gold and silver markets now have strong support undergirding current price levels.

The roster of economic data scheduled for this week includes reports on real estate, durable goods, and GDP. The GDP data due Friday will be the first look at the second quarter. And like most recent reports, it is expected to show some growth but not what could be deemed as real strength.

Bars are a Great Way to Save Money when Buying Gold

The fabrication costs associated with minting coins make them more expensive. Bars require fewer steps to make and are often made in larger sizes. Given that the labor and machine time involved in producing a smaller product is nearly the same as for producing something larger, it makes sense for larger products to cost a bit less.

These days refiners are focused on making bars that not only cost less, but are beautiful at the same time. “Poured” bars are in high demand from investors today because of the unique look – including the “old school” ascetic.
