Gold Price Recap
The gold futures contract gained 0.24% on Wednesday, June 8, as it extended a short-term consolidation along the $1,850 level. Last week on Thursday the market broke slightly above the recent trading range, but on Friday it came back closer to the $1,850 following the U.S. monthly jobs data release. In mid-May gold fell below the $1,800 level on strengthening U.S. dollar, Fed’s monetary policy tightening fears. This morning yellow metal is still trading close to the $1,850 level, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
