Gold Price Recap

The gold futures contract gained 1.39% on Thursday, May 19, as it broke above its short-term trading range after bouncing from the $1,800 price level again. On Monday the market reached new local low of $1,785.00, but it closed above the $1,800 level. Gold retraced almost all of the February-March rally on strengthening U.S. dollar, Fed’s monetary policy tightening fears.

This morning yellow metal is trading along its yesterday’s closing price, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
