Gold Price Recap
The gold futures contract lost 0.50% on Friday, June 17, as it continued to fluctuate within a consolidation along the $1,850 price level. It retraced some of its short-term advance after bouncing from the $1,800 support level following last week’s important FOMC’s release. This morning gold is trading slightly below the Friday’s closing price, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
Gold is 0.1% lower this morning, as it is trading below the $1,850 level. What about the other precious metals? Silver is 0.1% lower, platinum is 0.9% higher and palladium is 0.9% higher. So the main precious metals’ prices are virtually flat this morning.
