Market Sentiment: Gold, Silver, Platinum, Copper, USD Outlook | Webinar

Martin Essex, MSTA,
What's on this page

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Trader confidence remains high in gold, silver and other metals, suggesting further gains for XAU/USD, XAG/USD and XPT/USD once the recent bout of profit-taking is over.
  • Meanwhile, the US Dollar (DXY) continues to slide, bolstering metal prices.

Traders still confident about gold, silver, platinum, copper and iron ore

Traders remain confident of further gains in precious metals such as gold, silver and platinum, as well as base metals like copper and iron ore, suggesting that their prices could yet move higher still despite some profit-taking after gold reached a record high and silver a seven-year high.
