Daily Gold News: September 26 – Gold Continues Lower

Gold price breaks lower on stronger U.S. dollar, monetary policy fears.

The gold futures contract lost 0.46% on Monday, September 25 as it went closer to the last Thursday’s local low of around $1,933. Last week gold price was going lower after the FOMC monetary policy release. On Wednesday it reached a local high of around $1,969 before reversing lower. Recently the yellow metal was gaining despite stronger U.S. dollar, stock markets’ weakness. In late August it was rallying amidst reduced pressure for the further monetary policy tightening and on Septemeber 1 it reached a local high of $1,980.

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.
