Daily Gold News: Short-term Consolidation Following Monday’s Sell-off

The gold futures contract lost 2.62% on Monday, as it broke below its recent trading range. The precious metals’ market followed an advance in U.S. dollar and stocks’ sell-off. Recently gold retraced most of the decline from September 1 local high of $2,001.20. On Wednesday it has reached new short-term local high of $1,983.80 before coming back lower. Yesterday it got close to $1,900 price mark, as we can see on the daily chart:

Gold is 0.3% lower this morning, as it is fluctuating along yesterday’s closing price. What about the other precious metals? Silver lost 10.11% on Monday and today it is 1.3% lower. Platinum lost 6.65% and today it is 0.8% higher. Palladium lost 4.16% yesterday and today it’s 0.9% higher. So precious metals are fluctuating following yesterday’s sell-off this morning.
