17 June 2021The FOMC meeting has ended and despite virtually no changes in the U.S. Fed's ultra low interest rate policy coupled with significant QE, all eyes seemed to be focused on inflation and the Fed's likely reaction to it, even though it is nort expecting to make any serious policy changes for another 2 years. Precious metals all plunged in what we see as a huge over-reaction by the markets.
15 June 2021It looks like nervous gold and silver markets are now waiting on the outcome of the U.S. Fed's policy considerations following on from this week's FOMC meeting.

02 June 2021After a brief hiatus, the gold price crawled back above $1,900 an ounce on Wednesday and silver regained the $28 level. It looks as though the rapid precious metals price progress we saw in May may not be maitained in June, although portents still look favourable for gold and silver
