Daily Gold News: Thursday, Feb. 18 – Gold Bouncing After Recent Declines

Earlier this month it broke below the previous local low and $1,800 price mark for the first time following strengthening U.S. dollar and rallying stock market, among other factors. The market gave all of December’s advance.

Gold is now below its recent local low, as we can see on the daily chart ( the chart includes today’s intraday data ):

Gold is 0.4% higher this morning, as it is retracing some of yesterday’s decline. What about the other precious metals? Silver is 0.9% lower, platinum is 0.2% higher and palladium is 0.3% lower today. So precious metals are mixed this morning.

Yesterday’s Retail Sales number release has been much better than expected at +5.3%. The Producer Price Index has been bigger than expected at +1.3% m/m.

Today we will get Philly Fed Manufacturing Index, Unemployment Claims releases, among others.
