Daily Gold News: November 22 - Gold Is Above $2,000

Gold price broke above $2,000 level again; markets await more economic data.

The gold futures contract gained 1.08% on Tuesday, November 21 as it extended its recent advances on economic data, weaker U.S. dollar. Yesterday gold reached new local high of $2,009.80. 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 along its yesterday’s closing price as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
