Daily Gold News: November 7 – Gold Trading Lower

Gold price is breaking below its recent lows this morning, USD gains.

The gold futures contract lost 0.53% on Monday, November 6 as it extended a consolidation along the $2,000 level. On Friday it traded as high as $2,012 but then it retraced the advance following weaker-than-expected monthly jobs data. Recently it rallied on increasing global geopolitcal risks, interest rates fears, among other factors.

On October 6 gold reached new local low of $1,823.50. It was the lowest since early March, but the market bounced after monthly jobs data release, among other factors. Earlier gold kept selling off on economic data releases, strong U.S. dollar. On Friday gold was the highest since late July.

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 breaking below the recent lows as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
