The gold futures contract gained 0.76% on Monday, as it extended its Friday’s advance of 1.3%. The market has remained above the price level of $1,750. Last week’s Powell’s testimonies on Wednesday, Thursday and his Friday’s speech didn’t bring any new surprises for the financial markets. But gold has got very close to its medium-term highs, as we can see on the daily chart
Gold is 0.3% higher this morning, as it is slightly extending its recent advance. What about the other precious metals? Silver gained 0.31% on Monday and today it is 1.1% higher. Platinum gained 1.98% and today it is up 0.7%. Palladium gained 1.77% on Monday and today it is trading 0.2% lower. So precious metals generally extend their short-term uptrend today.
