Mining Review – Sunday 21st March 2021
Gold, silver, and platinum all rose this week after Fed Chair Powell announced no interest rises before 2023.

Mining Review – Sunday 21st March 2021
Gold, silver, and platinum all rose this week after Fed Chair Powell announced no interest rises before 2023. That suggests he prefers the inflationary route out of this crisis, and that’s good for gold of course.
There is a feeling that gold has bottomed for now, and is slowly rising upwards in reaction to economic news and FED announcements. It is sitting above the long term support at $1,723 on the chart.
Rhodium shot up another 8% due to scarcity of supply and demand from the auto industry.
Mining conferences have continued apace, albeit virtually, and that doesn’t look as though it will change in the near term, so no live conferences before the summer. I have had it confirmed that, (subject to covid obviously), the London Global Mining Finance and 121 events scheduled for November will be live events.

Mining Review – Commodities Overview
The FED Chair Powell stated that “interest rates wouldn’t be going up in the next two years”, which was music to the ears of gold buffs such as myself. US 10 year T bond yields continued to rise though, so the bond market might be trying to call his bluff.
PM prices rallied on that news , and it was a good week for silver and and palladium.
Rhodium shot up another 8% as this speciality metal keeps rising on limited supply.
A quiet week on the industrial metal front, although tin rose after the recent dramatic fall, clawing back some of those recent losses.
The Chinese government are trying to limit pollution by restricting steel production, which should impact iron ore and coking coal prices, but has not shown in their respective prices , yet.
|Coking Coal *||247||↑||6%|
* Coking coal price as per the Dalian Exchange.
- The most-traded May coking coal futures contract closed at 1,598 yuan ($245.64) per tonne on Friday, up by 10.50 yuan per tonne.
The ETF’s outperformed the actual metal prices this week.
