The gold futures contract gained 0.05% on Monday, as it extended its short-term consolidation along last Wednesday’s new yearly high of $1,796.10. The market continued its long-term uptrend last week. The recent economic data releases didn’t bring any new surprises for the financial markets. However, gold broke above the medium-term local highs, as we can see on the daily chart:
Gold is trading 0.2% lower this morning, as it is fluctuating within a short-term consolidation. What about the other precious metals? Silver gained 0.16% on Monday and today it is 0.2% lower. Platinum gained 1.09% yesterday and today it is unchanged, Palladium gained 2.04% on Monday and today it’s down 0.1%. So precious metals extend their short-term fluctuations this morning.
Yesterday’s economic data releases from China have been slightly better than expected. The PMI numbers are above 50 mark again. Today we will get the important Consumer Confidence release at 10:00 a.m. and then at 12:30 p.m. the Fed Chair Powell will testify. But investors will be waiting for Thursday’s monthly jobs data release. And tomorrow we will get the ADP Non-Farm Employment Change along with the ISM Manufacturing PMI numbers.
