Last week, Gold traded between $1,220 and $1,230 for most of the week as financial markets were waiting for news from the Federal Reserve about the pending Chinese trade tariffs. On Wednesday, Federal Reserve Chairman Powell surprised the market with two dovish statements. He stated that interest rates are "just below" levels where they won't stimulate the economy, and that interest rates are not on a pre-set path of increasing three to four times next year as projected in the past. Both of these statements drove the equity, bond, and precious metal markets higher. Interest rates dropped and the U.S. Dollar held at recent highs.

The larger concerns of the financial markets on Friday were what would happen in Buenos Aires at last weekend's G20 meetings, especially the meeting about upcoming trade tariffs between Trump and Chinese President Xi. It was reported on Saturday the President will wait 90 days before imposing the 25% tariffs to allow negotiations. Trump said their dinner after the G20 summit in Buenos Aires "was an amazing and productive meeting with unlimited possibilities for both the United States and China".

Last Friday, Gold closed at $1,221 per ounce, unchanged for the week.

Today: The markets are reacting to the positive Chinese tariff news and Gold is up $12 per ounce (1%), trading at $1,233. The DJIA is up 200 points, and interest rates and the U.S. Dollar Index are lower.

Silver closed at $14.17 last Friday, down $0.05 per ounce for the week. Last week, Silver was stuck in a narrow trading range like Gold. Silver traded between $14.05 and $14.30 per ounce for most of the week, waiting for a direction. Presently, the Silver-to-Gold ratio has dropped to an amazing 86.23-to-1 level.

Today: On the same news from Argentina, Silver quickly moved above the key $14.50 per ounce resistance level, then settled back to trade in the $14.40 to $14.48 range. $14.50 is an important level for Silver to trade and stay above.
