Daily Gold News: June 10 – Gold Price Is Closer to $2,300

Gold sold off following jobs data; all eyes are on the Wednesday’s CPI, Fed.

The gold futures contract lost 2.76% on Friday, June 7, as it retraced its last week’s advances, breaking below some recent local lows following monthly jobs data and a stronger U.S. dollar, among other factors. Recently, gold fluctuated after retreating from its May 20 record high of $2,454.20.

In mid-February, gold was the lowest since mid-December, after breaking below local lows from January on consumer inflation release. Since then, it gained over $450.

This morning, gold is basically going sideways, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):

The gold price is 0.4% lower, as it is trading above the $2,300 level. What about the other precious metals? Silver is 1.3% higher, platinum is 0.3% higher and palladium is 0.7% higher. So, the main precious metals’ prices are mixed this morning.

Friday’s Nonfarm Payrolls release has been higher than expected at +272,000, and the Unemployment Rate has also been higher than expected at 4.0%. Today, we won’t get any new important economic data; the markets will be waiting for the important CPI number and the FOMC release on Wednesday.
