Daily Gold News: June 13 – Gold Price Remains Close to $1,980

Gold extends its consolidation ahead of today’s consumer inflation data.

The gold futures contract lost 0.38% on Monday, June 12 as it continued to fluctuate within a short-term consolidation. Volatility remains low ahead of series of economic data releases. Gold keeps trading sideways following its mid-May selloff. It was selling off on strengthening U.S. dollar, among other factors. In early May the yellow metal retreated from the new medium-term high of $2,085.40.

In early March gold was selling off after the Fed Chief Powell’s hawkish testimony. Then it rebounded from the local low of around $1,813.

Today gold is retracing its yesterday’s decline as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
