The gold futures contract gained 0.86% on Monday, as it retraced some of last week’s decline following breaking below the price level of $1,900. But the market came down to around $1,850 level again yesterday, before moving back closer to $1,900. Recently gold was 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 mid-August local low, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
Gold is 0.1% higher this morning, as it is extending a short-term uptrend. What about the other precious metals? Silver gained 2.21% on Monday and today it is 0.2% higher. Platinum gained 5.87% and today it is 0.7% lower. Palladium gained 2.22% on Monday and today it’s 0.2% lower. So precious metals are going sideways this morning.
On Monday we didn’t get any new important economic data releases. Today we will get the Consumer Confidence number release at 10:00 a.m. And there will be a lot of Fed talk.
The markets are waiting for the important monthly jobs data release on Friday.
