The gold futures contract gained 1.27% on Friday, as it broke slightly above the price level of $1,750. Last week’s Powell’s testimonies on Wednesday, Thursday and his Friday’s speech didn’t bring any new surprises for the financial markets. But gold got closer to its medium-term highs. However, it continues to trade within a consolidation, as we can see on the daily chart:
Gold is 0.2% higher this morning, as it is trading along Friday’s daily high. What about the other precious metals? Silver gained 1.94% on Friday and today it is 1.1% higher. Platinum gained 1.86% and today it is up 1.0%. Palladium lost 0.01% on Friday and today it is 0.5% higher. So precious metals’ prices are gaining today.
Last Thursday’s Philly Fed Manufacturing Index has been much better-than-expected but the Unemployment Claims number came at 1.5 million again vs. expectations of 1.3 million. So overall, the recent economic data releases have been mixed.
Today, we will have the U.S. Existing Home Sales release. The previous release came at 4.33 million, and the expectations for the month of May (annualized number) are at 4.15 million.
