Gold Price Recap
The gold futures contract gained 0.34% on Wednesday, June 15, as it fluctuated following the important FOMC’s release. Yesterday’s rate hike led to an increased volatility, but the market extended its short-term consolidation above the $1,800 price level. This morning gold is trading within its yesterday’s daily range, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
Precious Metals Price Action
Gold is 0.7% lower this morning, as it is retracing some of the overnight rebound. What about the other precious metals? Silver is 1.2% lower, platinum is 1.2% lower and palladium is 0.1% higher. So the main precious metals’ prices are lower this morning.
