Global Precious Metals MMI: Gold Sees a Strong Rally

Platinum bars or ingots background. Precious metals.

Once again, the Global Precious Metals MMI (Monthly Metals Index) failed to exhibit strong bearish or bullish pressure. The index remained sideways throughout February, budging down a mere 0.65%. Despite this, some bullish pressure did seep into precious metal prices at the beginning of March, when numerous precious metals began to rally. Gold prices, in particular, shot up, likely due to the weakening of the DXY (U.S. dollar index).

At this time, precious metal investors should remain cautious about purchasing precious metals, as these rallies could cool down.

Platinum Prices on the Rise

Like other precious metals, platinum markets rose more over the past month as bullish momentum pushed prices out of their short term range. That said, prices would need to continue with bullish strength to indicate a bullish outlook as markets are still within a long term sideways trend.

Gold prices previously appeared to trade within a range after peaking in late 2023. This month, prices reached new highs, ultimately surpassing $2,150/oz. This shifted the overall market bullish once again. Indeed, gold continues to create newer highs, driving prices into a continuation to the upside. However, as prices remain at historically elevated levels, volatility is to be expected.
