Daily Gold News: January 10 – Gold Price Remains Below $2,050

Gold extends its short-term consolidation; tomorrow’s CPI release in focus.

The gold futures contract lost 0.02% on Tuesday, January 9, as it went sideways following its Monday’s decline of 0.8%. On Monday, the market retraced more of its late December advances on stronger U.S. dollar, among other factors. In late December, it bounced from the $2,100 level, and last week it was going sideways after breaking below the previous local lows. Earlier, the yellow metal fluctuated following its December 4 extraordinary price action and a downward reversal from new all-time high price of $2,152.30. Then, it traded below $2,000 mark on stronger U.S. dollar, uncertainty concerning economic data. After the Fed’s release gold rallied back above $2,050 price level.

On October 6 gold reached new medium-term low of $1,823.50. It was the lowest since early March, but then the market bounced and rallied above $2,000.

This morning gold is extending short-term fluctuations, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
