Gold & Silver Prices – Daily Outlook August 27

The prices gold and silver hiked during last week, and I suspect bullion rates will continue to trade up during this week. As I have pointed out in the precious metals weekly outlook the main events of the week will revolve around the U.S GDP, Bernanke’s speech at Jackson Hole, U.S pending home sales and China’s manufacturing PMI. There are still speculations around the future steps of ECB vis-à-vis its bond purchasing program that could continue affecting not only the Euro but also precious metals rates during the week. On today’s agenda: German Business Climate Survey and FOMC member Pianalto Speaks. 

Here is a short outlook for precious metals for Monday, August 27th:
