Guest Commentary: Gold & Silver Weekly Setup for February 20-24

Guest Commentary: Gold & Silver Weekly Setup for February 20-24

Lior Cohen, Energy Analyst for Trading NRG,

Gold and silver didn't do much during the passing week as they have zigzagged around their levels form a week earlier. The news from Greece regarding its struggle to receive the next bailout package from the EU, and the announcement of Moody's to downgrade the credit rating of several EU countries didn't seem to affect much commodities traders. The news of the contraction of the EU GDP by 0.3% in Q42011 was also something that didn't catch traders by surprise as the Euro only slightly declined that day. Finally, during last week there were several U.S. reports that came out and showed a slight improvement in the economic situation including a rise in the Philly Fed index. Today, the financial news will revolve around the meeting of EU ministers of finance regarding the approval of the second bailout of Greek economy.

Gold remained virtually unchanged on a weekly scale as it very moderately increased during the week by 0.03%; on the other hand, during last week the average price reached $1,725 /t. oz which is 0.53% below the previous week's average price of $1,734.22 /t. oz.
