Daily Gold News: November 14 – Gold Price Is Still Close to $1,950

Gold trades sideways ahead of the important CPI release.

The gold futures contract gained 0.65% on Monday, November 13 as it bounced following its recent declines. Yesterday’s daily low was at $1,935.60. The market was the lowest since mid-October. Last week on Tuesday it broke below the previous trading range on strengthening U.S. dollar, among other factors. Gold was selling off from its previous Friday’s high of $2,012. Recently it was rallying on increasing global geopolitcal risks, among other factors.

On October 6 gold reached new medium-term low of $1,823.50. It was the lowest since early March, but then the market bounced and rallied to $2,000 level. In late August gold price was rallying amidst reduced pressure for the further monetary policy tightening and on Septemeber 1 it reached a local high of $1,980. In May gold retreated from 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 a local low of around $1,813.

Today gold is trading sideways ahead of the important inflation data as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):

The gold price is unchanged as it is trading along the $1,950 level. What about the other precious metals? Silver is 0.2% higher, platinum is 0.2% higher and palladium is 1.1% lower. So the main precious metals’ prices are relatively flat this morning.

The markets will be waiting for today’s important Consumer Price Index release at 8:30 a.m. There will likely be an increased volatility following that data.
