The gold futures contract gained 0.45% on Thursday, as it fluctuated following the decline after breaking below the price level of $1,900. The market reached the lowest since late July. Gold keeps retracing its rally from around $1,800 to August 7 record high of $2,089.20 in reaction to U.S. dollar rally, among other factors. Gold also broke below its mid-August local low, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
Gold is 0.5% lower this morning, as it is trading within yesterday’s daily trading range. What about the other precious metals? Silver gained 0.39% on Thursday and today it is 2.0% lower. Platinum lost 0.59% and today it is 1.1% lower. Palladium lost 1.39% yesterday and today it’s 2.0% lower. So precious metals are extending their downtrend this morning.
Yesterday’s Unemployment Claims release has been slightly worse than expected at 870,000 and the New Home Sales number has been better than expected at 1,011 million. The main stock market indexes went sideways following the recent decline.
