Precious Metals Price Outlook

Precious metal prices log third consecutive drop in May

June 11, 2019

Precious metal prices declined for the third month in a row in May, declining 0.9% month-on-month. The print was above April’s 1.7% decrease.

While the four commodities that comprise the group posted losses compared to April, the stories were quite different. Gold prices were mostly flat in May as trade uncertainties and a weak dollar kept a lid on prices. Excess supply prompted platinum prices to fall, while a somber global economic outlook weighed on palladium and silver prices. Data for June suggests that precious metal will trend up in the month as investors flock toward safe-haven assets.

Met the why particular panelists see precious metal prices rising 9.3% in Q4 2019 compared to the same period of 2018 (previously reported: +9.9% year-on-year). The healthy expansion reflects persistent geopolitical risks, and the consequent increased demand for safe-haven assets, as well as a base effect from last year. The momentum in precious metal prices is expected to continue next year, with Met the why particular panelists projecting a 2.8% increase in Q4 2020 in annual terms.
