Daily Gold News: October 13 – Gold Price Breaking Above $1,900

Gold trades higher as geopolitical risks mount, among other factors.

The gold futures contract lost 0.23% on Thursday, October 12 as it fluctuated following its recent advances. Last week on Friday gold reached new local low of $1,823.50. It was the lowest since early March, but the market rallied after monthly jobs data release. Earlier gold kept selling off after economic data releases, strong U.S. dollar.

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 extending the uptrend as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
