Daily Gold News: June 14 – Gold Price: Further Consolidation

Gold continues to fluctuate, remaining above $2,300

The gold futures contract lost 1.56% on Thursday, June 13, as it retraced its Wednesday’s advance of 1.2%. On Wednesday, it rebounded after a lower-than-expected consumer inflation data. It was as high as $2,358.80, retracing some of its last Friday’s sell-off. Last Friday, gold broke below the previous lows following monthly jobs data and a stronger U.S. dollar, among other factors. Recently, it fluctuated after retreating from its May 20 record high of $2,454.20. Yesterday, gold dipped after the FOMC release.

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 rebounding again, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
