Gold, silver pressured by upbeat trader/investor attitudes

Kitco News

(Kitco News) - Gold and silver prices are lower in midday U.S. trading Thursday. Little risk aversion in the marketplace at present is a negative for the safe-haven metals. Traders could also be evening up or getting out of futures positions ahead of Friday morning's U.S. employment situation report from the Labor Department, which could cause some higher volatility in markets. The August non-farm payrolls component of the jobs report is expected to see growth of 720,000 workers compared to a rise of 943,000 non-farm jobs in July. October gold futures were last down $5.00 at $1,808.80. December Comex silver was last down $0.331 at $23.89 an ounce.

The U.S. stock indexes are firmer at midday, with S&P 500 and Nasdaq futures hear record highs. As the "summer doldrums" end next Tuesday when traders and investors come back to work after a three-day U.S. holiday weekend, focus may become keener on elements that could be unsettling for the market place, such as the surge in Covid cases, China's government crackdown on its businesses that it says are making too much money, and North Korea's nuclear program.

The key outside markets today see the U.S. dollar index slightly down. Nymex crude oil futures prices are higher and trading around $70.25 a barrel. Meantime, the yield on the benchmark U.S. 10-year Treasury note is presently fetching around 1.28%.
