Daily Gold News: November 30 – Gold Price Is Still Below $2,050

Gold is weaker as markets await important Core PCE Price Index release.

The gold futures contract gained 0.35% on Wednesday, November 29 as it further extended its recent advances on economic data, weaker U.S. dollar, among other factors. The market went close to $2,050 price level and it was the highest since May. On previous Monday gold was the lowest since mid-October, and then it rallied after lower-than-expected CPI release last week.

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 above $2,000.

Today gold is retracing its yesterday’s advance as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):

The gold price is 0.4% lower as it is trading along the $2,040 level (it’s the less active contract series; February contract is trading along $2,060). What about the other precious metals? Silver is 0.3% lower, platinum is 0.2% higher and palladium is 1.1% lower. So the main precious metals’ prices are lower this morning.

Yesterday’s Preliminary GDP release has been better than expected at +5.2% q/q. Today we will get the important Core PCE Price Index and Unemployment Claims releases at 8:30 a.m., among others.
