Gold Price Falls as both the Banks of England and Canada Held Rates Steady

§  Equity markets in the U.S. and Canada rose further this week, despite continued sluggish economic growth. Both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 Index extended all-time highs on Thursday, prompting several money managers in the U.S. to issue caution that the rally could be short-lived, with suggestions that the global economy would continue to remain sluggish while concerns over the ramifications of the Brexit vote continued. While equity markets rallied, the price of gold fell during the week, falling as low as $1,320 on Thursday during intra-day trading. On Friday, a truck filled with weapons ploughed into a large crowd of spectators celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, France, only eight months after the Paris attacks in November. The latest death toll at the time of publication was 84; however, despite the tragedy, markets remained relatively steady, with the S&P/TSX Composite index finishing 3.8% higher for the week. Following the attack, gold fell further before finishing at $1,329 per ounce on Friday. The lower gold price coincided with the Bank of England’s surprising decision to keep its key interest rate at 0.5%, while the Bank of Canada also kept its interest rate on hold. Meanwhile, silver (↓0.9%) and platinum (↓0.8%) were also down, finishing at $20.10 and $1,089 per ounce respectively. Base metals rallied during the week, with copper leading the way, gaining 4.1% to finish at $2.22 per pound, while nickel (↑3.9%), lead (↑3.04%) and zinc (↑2.82%) each finished at $4.64, $0.85 and $1.00 per pound respectively. WTI prices rose after last week’s heavy losses, up 1.2% for the week. Finally, the UxC Weekly Spot Price of uranium fell 5% during the week, as the Broker average price closed at $25.13 per pound on Friday.
