The gold futures contract gained 0.02% on Wednesday, as it further extended a short-term consolidation following last week’s Wednesday’s advance to new long-term high of $1,829.80. The recent economic data releases have been better than expected. Gold broke above medium-term local highs in June, as we can see on the daily chart:
Gold is 0.4% lower this morning, as it continues to trade close to $1,800 price level. What about the other precious metals? Silver advanced 1.18% on Wednesday and today it is trading 1.1% lower. Platinum gained 0.76% and today it is 0.7% lower. Palladium gained 1.23% and today it is 0.75% lower. So precious metals’ prices are going down this morning.
