Daily Gold News: May 25 – Gold Trades Along Local Lows
Gold price remains above $1,950 level as it further extends a consolidation.
The gold futures contract lost 0.50% on Wednesday, May 24 as it continued to fluctuate within a short-term consolidation above the $1,950 price level. On Friday the market retraced most of its Thursday’s decline and it got back above $1,980. On Tuesday and on Wednesday gold sold off closer to the $1,950 level again. Recently it retreated from the May 4 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 the recent lows 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 $1,960 level. What about the other precious metals? Silver is 0.3% lower, platinum is 0.3% lower and palladium is 1.1% lower. So the main precious metals’ prices are slightly lower this morning.
Today we will get the Preliminary GDP and Unemployment Claims releases, among others.
