Quiet Ahead Of Greek Talks, Chinese New Year And President’s Day

Yesterday’s softer U.S. retail sales data took some of the edge off a stronger dollar and lent some support to the metals. Germany surprised with higher than expected GDP numbers, which has created some lift in European equity markets. The story will continue to be focused on the Greek negotiations with the EU, which will come to some form of conclusion on Monday. We would suspect gold to hold the recent $1,218 - $1,232 range going into the weekend. Should a satisfactory resolution be agreed to, or at a minimum an extension of the current debt facility, and assuming the Ukraine cease fire holds, the metals may face some selling pressure next week.
