Gold Price Recap
The gold futures contract gained 0.05% on Friday, May 20, as it fluctuated following its Thursday’s advance of 1.4%. The market retraced some of the recent declines after bouncing from its last Monday’s new medium-term low of $1,785.00. Recently gold retraced all of the February-March rally on strengthening U.S. dollar, Fed’s monetary policy tightening fears. So it went back to the $1,800 level where it’s been fluctuating for months in 2021. This morning yellow metal is trading higher after breaking above the $1,850 level, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
