The gold futures contract lost 0.96% on Friday, as it extended its short-term downtrend following breaking below the recent local lows along the price level of $1,850. Three weeks ago on Monday gold sold off 5% in one day after global financial markets’ euphoria rally in reaction to Covid-19 Pfizer’s vaccine news release. The yellow metal came back down to $1,850 price level. Last week there has been a breakdown below that support level, as we can see on the daily chart ( the chart includes today’s intraday data ):
Gold is 0.8% lower this morning, as it is further extending the downtrend. What about the other precious metals? Silver lost 3.09% on Friday and today it is 2.5% lower. Platinum lost 0.52% and today it is 0.2% lower. Palladium gained 3.17% on Friday and today it’s 0.7% lower. So precious metals are lower again this morning .
