Daily Gold News: July 14 – Gold Price Remains Close to $1,960

Gold continues to trade sideways as markets digest weaker U.S. dollar.

The gold futures contract gained 0.11% on Thursday, July 13 as it slightly extended its Wednesday’s advance of 1.3% and a breakout above the recent trading range. On Wednesday it broke higher following slightly lower than expected Consumer Price Index release. Precious metals’ prices followed weakening U.S. dollar, among other factors. Recently gold was going sideways after bouncing from new local low of $1,900.60. On June 29 it was the lowest since mid-March.

In May gold retreated from new medium-term high of $2,085.40 and in early March it was selling off after the Fed Chief Powell’s hawkish testimony. Then it rebounded from local low of around $1,813.

Today gold is trading slightly lower as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
