The second quarter kicks off next week, but the outlook for gold is expected to remain not much different than what is currently influencing the metal: underlying support from concerns in the eurozone and loose monetary policy, but not enough to push the metal into a new price range.
June gold futures fell Friday, settling at $1,595.70 an ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange, and were down 0.765% on the week. Most-active May silver fell on the day and the week, settling at $28.698, down 1.3% on the week. Gold ended March up 1%, but the first quarter down 5%, while silver ended March 0.38% lower and the first quarter down 6.46%.
The U.S., U.K. and many European markets are closed Friday for Good Friday; on Monday, trade resumes in the U.S., but the U.K. and most European markets remain closed. Trade resumes there Tuesday.
In the Kitco News Gold Survey, out of 34 participants, 27 responded this week. Of those 27 participants, 17 see prices up, while six see prices down, and four see prices moving sideways or are neutral. Market participants include bullion dealers, investment banks, futures traders, money managers and technical-chart analysts.
With the situation in Cyprus still making headlines – banks just opened there on Thursday for the first time since the crisis started – several market watchers said events in the Mediterranean nation will likely continue to influence the yellow metal. However, they said, the Cyprus news hasn’t been enough to push the market above the strong resistance at $1,620 an ounce, which has acted as a ceiling for a while.
“Right now I think we’re seeing some support from the Cyprus situation, but we’re not seeing demand. Gold is still in a tight range. Still, no one is coming to us to sell, that’s for sure,” said Peter Thomas, vice president, INTL FCStone Precious Metals North America, a physical dealer.
Another dealer at a bullion bank said buying interest for gold comes in when the metal slips to the lower end of the current trading range, with demand particularly notable by physical buyers in China. That could keep prices supported and might help them tick higher, although he said he isn’t looking for any sizable gains.
George Gero, vice president with RBC Capital Markets Global Futures and a precious metals strategist, said the start of a new quarter means fund managers might have new views on how to look at their portfolios.
