a decoupling in gold and silver as the US economy
showed signs of recovery. Well the coupling is back as
investors abandon gold and silver futures in droves as
they move to other asset classes like equities.
The latest episode of gold and silver downturn is being
witnessed as US new home sales data in US climbed 2.1%
to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 476000 units and

U.S. metros climbed to 12.1% in April.

Macro economic indicators suggest that US Dollar may
gain strength as the months progress riding on growth
expectations in US. This may prove to be bearish for
silver and gold.
“The coupling between gold and silver has been there for
a long time primarily because of the investment demand
that characterizes both commodities. The decoupling,
however occurred as silver industrial demand too played
a hand. Now, the industrial demand is taking a backseat
as silver futures follow gold in heavy sell-off,” said John
Godson, Technical Analyst with Commodity Online.
