The gold futures contract lost 0.25% on Thursday, as it retraced some of the recent advance. The market got very close to $1,800 mark on Wednesday but then it has reversed lower. The recent economic data releases didn’t bring any new surprises for the financial markets. However, gold broke above its local highs, as we can see on the daily chart:
Gold is unchanged this morning, as it is continues to fluctuate along Wednesday’s and yesterday’s closing prices. What about the other precious metals? Silver gained 1.27% on Thursday and today it is 0.3% higher. Platinum lost 0.24% and today it is trading 0.3% lower. Palladium lost 2.30% yesterday and today it is up 0.8%. So precious metals extend their short-term consolidation today.
