Daily Gold News: November 8 – Gold Price Is Close to $1,970 Again

Gold trades sideways as markets await Jerome Powell’s speech.

The gold futures contract lost 0.76% on Tuesday, November 7 as it broke below its recent trading range on strengthening U.S. dollar, among other factors. On Friday it traded as high as $2,012 and yesterday the daily low was at $1,962.80. Recently gold 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 trading along its yesterday’s closing price as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
