Daily Gold News: May 22 – Gold Trading Along Friday’s Closing Price
Gold price bounced from its Thursday’s low; it’s still trading below the $2,000 mark.
The gold futures contract gained 1.11% on Friday, May 19 as it retraced its Thursday’s decline of 1.3% following the Fed Chair Powell’s speech and weakening U.S. dollar, among other factors. Gold bounced from its Thursday’s local low of $1,954.40. Recently it retreated from the May 4 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 trading along its Friday’s closing price as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
The gold price is 0.1% lower this morning as it is trading along the $1,980 level. What about the other precious metals? Silver is unchanged platinum is 1.3% higher and palladium is 0.4% higher. So the main precious metals’ prices are virtually flat this morning.
Today we won’t get any new important economic data releases. The markets will be waiting for tomorrow’s PMI numbers releases.
