Daily Gold News: June 30 – Gold Touched $1,900 Level

The markets await important Core PCE Price Index release.

The gold futures contract lost 0.22% on Thursday, June 29 as it further extended its downtrend. The daily low was at $1,900.60 and gold was the lowest since mid-March. Recently it has been bouncing from the $1,920 level, but a stronger U.S. dollar, stock markets’ advances pushed the yellow metal’s price lower.

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 the local low of around $1,813.

Today gold is trading along its yesterday’s closing price as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):

Yesterday’s Final GDP release has been higher than expected at +2.0% q/q and the Unemployment Claims release has been lower than expected at 239,000. Today we will get the important Core PCE Price Index announcement at 8:30 a.m., among others.
