Gold Silde Hits $875
August 06, 2008

Gold Down to $875

Gold has hit $875 this afternoon, as it continues it's summer slip 'n" slide ride. Silver is down to $16.45, palladium is at $348 and Paltinum has hovering at $1570.

Tomorrow will bring the Fed meeting, but it is unlikely that they will take any interest rate action. Never-the-less, some potential gold buyers may be holding off, just in case. I also noticed this morning that crude oil was down to $120.90 a barrel. It's decline surely has had an effect on investors interest in gold, just as it has lightened the economic pressures on the dollar. This afternoon crude has seemed to join gold on the slip 'n' slide with a decline to $118.70 as of this posting.
