After reaching a low of $1,204 last Monday, Gold started on the road back to $1,300 per ounce. Gold closed Friday at $1,227.50 (the highest for the week), up $18 for the week. Gold and Silver’s move higher was helped by a combination of Janet Yellen’s congressional statement that “considerable uncertainty always attends the economic outlook,” and a disappointing June Consumer Price Index.

Last week’s testing of the important $1,200 support level was the third attempt to break this important support level since April, and Gold held all three times. Now, as Gold moves higher, reaching the important $1,300 resistance level by August will also be the third attempt since April to break this important resistance level. I believe the third attempt to break $1,300 will be successful, and Gold will build a base above $1,300 for the next move higher.

Today: Lower 10-year U.S. Bonds and a lower U.S. Dollar Index are helping Gold move above the $1,230 level today. With Gold on the road to a $1,300 resistance level in August, the next important short-term resistance level for Gold is $1,250 per ounce.

After reaching a 2017 low of $14.34 on July 7, last week Silver did find fresh buying and built a base above $15.60 per ounce all five trading days, as I mentioned in last week’s Market Report. Silver closed on Friday at $15.93 per ounce, up $0.51 for the week. Now, I believe Silver will quickly move back above the key $16 level this week and build a new base.

The Gold/Silver ratio has decreased to 77.04-to-1.

Today: Silver quickly moved above the $16 level today, reaching a high of $16.23 per ounce in early trading. Now, I look for a little consolidation above $16 for three to four trading days. This would allow fresh investor buying.

Six different series are available: $20 Gold Saint Gaudens, $20 Gold Liberties, $10 Gold Indians, Morgan & Peace Silver Dollars, and the Walking Liberty Half Dollars.

The CoinStats report provides a list of my recommended certified U.S. Gold and Silver coins which are found listed on the Best Value page.
