The Metals:

 

Gold dropped $11.36 to $1267.64 at about 9AM EST before it bounced back higher into midday, but it then fell back off again after the release of FOMC Minutes from the fed’s April meeting and the yellow metal closed with a loss of 1.7%.  Silver slipped to as low as $16.78 and ended with a loss of 2.26%.

 

Euro gold fell to about €1121, platinum lost $28 to $1024, and copper lost 3 cents to about $2.07.

 

Gold and silver equities fell markedly in the last two hours of trade and ended with about 7% losses.

Oil initially remained higher after the Energy Information Administration reported that crude inventories rose 1.3 million barrels, gasoline inventories fell 2.5 million barrels, and distillates fell 3.2 million barrels, but it then turned slightly lower by the close on worries about rising interest rates.

 

The U.S. dollar index rose and treasuries fell after the fed indicated that an interest rate hike in June is likely if economic data is strong enough.

 

The Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P traded mixed on interest rate uncertainty.

 

Among the big names making news in the market today were Lowe’s, Charter Communications, and Target.
