TDC Note – It appears people are still holding onto their “scrap” gold and silver, especially the good stuff! Broken jewelry has never been a problem for me, it’s still gold, silver, platinum or whatever, it no longer holds the “artist” value but it still has value. Silverware is staying home also.

United States scrap gold prices fell on the Scrap Register Price Index as on Tuesday, in line with gold futures prices at New York Mercantile Exchange mainly due to an agreement between the U.S. and North Korea aimed at denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula muted demand for the haven metal, ahead of an expected interest-rate hike by the Federal Reserve.

The major gold scrap commodities prices including 9ct hallmarked gold scrap, 14ct hallmarked gold scrap, 18ct hallmarked gold scrap, 22ct hallmarked gold scrap, 9ct hallmarked gold scrap, 14ct hallmarked gold scrap, 18ct hallmarked gold scrap and 22ct hallmarked gold scrap on the Scrap Register Price Index declined on Tuesday.
