Daily Gold News: September 14 – Gold Price Moving Sideways

Gold continues to trade along its short-term local lows.

The gold futures contract lost 0.13% on Wednesday, September 13 as it fluctuated following the recent declines. On Tuesday gold broke below its last week’s local lows due to the strengthening U.S. dollar, among other factors. In late August gold was rallying amidst reduced pressure for the further monetary policy tightening. On Friday Septemeber 1 it reached $1,980 and yesterday it traded close to $1,930.

On June 29 gold was the lowest since mid-March (the low was at $1,900.60). In May gold retreated from new 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 sideways again as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):

The gold price is 0.1% lower as it is still trading along the $1,930 level. What about the other precious metals? Silver is 0.9% lower platinum is 0.9% higher and palladium is 0.8% higher. So the main precious metals’ prices are mixed this morning.

Yesterday’s Consumer Price Index release has been as expected at +0.6% m/m, however the Core number has been higher than expected at +0.3% m/m. The markets’ reaction was mild though. Today we will get the important Producer Price Index release at 8:30 a.m. and the ECB monetary policy release.
