Precious Metals Price Outlook

Precious metal prices continue to fall in October due to stronger USD

Precious metal prices fell 1.3% month-on-month in October, after dipping 1.9% in September, marking the second consecutive monthly fall in prices.

Nearly all of the same factors that previously led investors to seek safe-haven demand in the USD and move away from precious metals—as prices tend to fall in times of heightened uncertainty—remained at the forefront over the past month. Gold, silver and platinum prices all tumbled in October, as renewed lockdown restrictions, uncertainty over the timing of another U.S. stimulus package and calls for additional monetary stimulus measures from the ECB sent investors running for the hills in recent weeks. That said, palladium prices continued to grow due to a surge in new energy-efficient vehicle sales in China in September–October, amid still relatively tight supply levels.
