The gold futures contract lost 0.93% on Tuesday, as it retraced most of Friday’s advance of 1.35%. On Monday the price has reached slightly above $1,760. Yesterday’s daily low was at $1,728 and today it’s getting close to $1,700. Gold is still trading within its medium-term consolidation, as we can see on the daily chart:
Gold is 1.1% lower this morning following better-than-expected U.S. economic data releases. Financial markets remain in risk-on mode, as stocks continue to hover along their medium-term highs. What about the other precious metals? Silver lost 3.01% on Tuesday and today it is 2.2% lower. Platinum lost 3.60% and today is 2.1% lower. Palladium lost 0.29% yesterday and today it is 0.3% higher. So precious metals are trading lower this morning.
The recent economic data releases have been confirming negative coronavirus impact on global economies. Today’s ADP Non-Farm Employment Change has been better than expected. However, it was at -2.8 million. Investors will wait for the important ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI number release today. But markets’ attention will be focusing on Friday’s monthly jobs data release. And tomorrow we will get some quite important European Central Bank’s releases.
