Daily Gold News: November 21 - Gold Price Extends Consolidation
Gold remains close to $2,000 as markets fluctuate following last week’s price action.
The gold futures contract lost 0.22% on Monday, November 20 as it fluctuated below the $2,000 level following last week’s advance. On Friday gold reached new local high of around $1,996 following weaker U.S. dollar, and yesterday it traded as low as $1,967.20. The market extended its rebound from last Monday’s local low of $1,935.60. On Monday a week ago the market was the lowest since mid-October. Then gold rallied after the important Tuesday’s CPI release.
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.
Today gold is trading higher as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
The gold price is 0.4% higher as it is trading slightly below the $1,990 level. What about the other precious metals? Silver is 0.1% lower, platinum is 0.7% higher and palladium is 0.4% higher. So the main precious metals’ prices are mixed this morning.
