Daily Gold News: September 15 – Gold Trades Higher

Gold price extends its yesterday’s bounce despite strong U.S. dollar.

The gold futures contract gained 0.02% on Thursday, September 14 as it went sideways following its recent declines. On Tuesday gold broke below last week’s local lows due to the strengthening U.S. dollar, among other factors and yesterday it bounced from new local low of around $1,922. 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 extending yesterday’s bounce as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
