Daily Gold News: Friday, June 17 – Gold is Trading Along $1,850 Level Again

Gold Price Recap

The gold futures contract gained 1.67% on Thursday, June 16, as it retraced its Wednesday’s intraday decline following important FOMC’s release. The yellow metal broke above the $1,850 price level again and it extended its weeks-long consolidation. This morning gold is trading slightly below the $1,850 level again, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):

Precious Metals Price Action

Gold is 0.6% lower this morning, as it is retracing some of yesterday’s advance. What about the other precious metals? Silver is 0.5% lower, platinum is 0.7% lower and palladium is 0.5% lower. So the main precious metals’ prices are lower this morning.
