Daily Gold News: June 27 – Gold Price Going Sideways Again

Gold remains below $1,950 level as markets await the Consumer Confidence release.

The gold futures contract gained 0.22% on Monday, June 26 as it fluctuated below the $1,950 price level. On Friday gold reached new local low of $1,919.50 and yesterday it bounced above $1,940. Recently the market broke below its local lows following Fed Chair Powell’s Testimony, stock markets’ rebound, among other factors.

In May the yellow metal retreated from the new medium-term high of $2,085.40 and 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 trading slightly lower as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
