The gold futures contract gained 0.72% on Tuesday, as it broke above its short-term consolidation. In early April the market has bounced from the support level marked by March 8 local low of $1,663.30. Since then it has been advancing. Today gold is trading above $1,900 price mark and it’s the highest since early January, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
Gold is 0.5% higher this morning following breaking above $1,900. What about the other precious metals? Silver is 0.3% higher, platinum is 0.8% higher and palladium is 0.8% higher today. So precious metals are higher this morning.
Yesterday’s Consumer Confidence number release has been worse than expected at 117.2. The markets will be waiting for tomorrow’s Preliminary GDP and Unemployment Claims releases.
