Daily Gold News: Thursday, November 17 – Gold Price Extends Its Correction

Gold is down this morning, as sentiment deteriorates on stronger U.S. dollar, stocks’ correction.

The gold futures contract lost 0.06% on Wednesday, November 16, as it further extended a short-term consolidation following the recent advances. On Tuesday it reached new medium-term high of $1,791.80, but it reversed lower following news of the Russia-Ukraine conflict escalation. This morning gold is retracing more of the recent advance, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):

Today, gold is 0.4% lower, as it is trading below the $1,770 price level. What about the other precious metals? Silver is 1.8% lower, platinum is 1.0% lower and palladium is 2.3% lower. So the main precious metals’ prices are lower this morning.

Yesterday’s Retail Sales release has been better than expected at +1.3% m/m. Today we will get the Philly Fed Manufacturing Index, Unemployment Claims, Building Permits and Housing Starts releases.
