Gold Marks Third Straight Gain on Tuesday, Feb. 9


Prices for gold and platinum increased Tuesday while those for silver and palladium declined. Gold’s gain was its third in a row.

Gold for April delivery rose $3.30, or 0.2%, to settle at $1,837.50 an ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange. The finish was gold’s highest since Feb 1.

"Gold prices are likely to move higher as stimulus talks continue over in Washington, and this is the biggest catalyst which is driving the prices higher," Naeem Aslam, chief market analyst at AvaTrade, told MarketWatch. "Having said that, we really need to break above the $1,900 mark before we can be confident that bulls are back in town."

Gold futures ranged from a low of $1,830.30 to a high of $1,849.50. They climbed 1.2% on Monday.

Silver for March delivery shed 17.4 cents, or 0.6%, to settle at $27.402 an ounce. Silver futures traded between $27.13 and $27.88. They surged 2.1% on Monday.

In other precious metals futures Tuesday:

  • April platinum gained $19.20, or 1.6%, to $1,194.40 an ounce, ranging from $1,170.60 to $1,206.40.

  • Palladium for March delivery declined $16.10, or 0.7%, to $2,320.60 an ounce, trading between $2,303.50 and $2,351.50.

Thank you coinnews. In other news my noose, my flame Janet Yellen told President Biden to tell all the big wig swamp CEOs yadda yadda yadda


And CNN back to fake news, and Van Jones with his big nothing burger.


Van Jones what a F****** muppet


Also, Reuters interviewed Marc Chandler, a non free thinker


The federal reserve a safe flexible and stable monetary system. Says who?


I know this is a coin forum but fox thinks we need more guns, this is America if you dont have guns, you dont live in America. Also my wife’s credit card was stolen but I dont want to cancel because the thief spends less than her! Ok we cant stay here, but I cant go home, my wife is there! Lol


Jake, What does it all mean? The ATB 5 oz bullion sales for 2019 shows: 80k, 80k, 72.5k, 55.2k, 25k but no total for the year. The 2020 ATB 5 oz bullion sales shows: 45k, 45k, 45k, 45k, 45k but no total for the year.Can they not do math or do they not really know what they might have sold or are they holding for future sales or—? If it is only an addition problem perhaps you could help them. Good luck on your collecting the 5 year platinum eagle series. Do you think it will be like the series… Read more »


Omg why are you doing arithmetic off the Wizard wizardy concocted inside the mint.


I collect. This is a hobby! Bitcoin included. You are thinking of selling tomorrow. Wrong! These are investment vehicles of the future whether you buy into it I couldn’t care less. When price goes up I buy, when price goes way up I buy a little less.


Remember everyone said diversify. Dont put all your eggs into one basket. Why would the mint change such a collectable NEST EGG if they didnt think change was good.. the future is digital, you have wells fargo discover capital one TCF, all online DiGiTaLlY, why not bitcoin? Oh someone said it’s a scam? What a muppet! Do the math!!!! UNDERSTAND?! HOLD and value skyrockets! Especially bitcoin! Buy today and account for the future. # said no one at the Federal reserve


Just tune into Fox CNN or any other media that wants to control your freethinker abilities. How do I send Kennedy a secret admirer gift? # vote Greg Gutfeld for President. No really, two freethinkers for the most part
