The gold futures contract gained 0.08% on Thursday, as it continued to fluctuate following Tuesday’s retreat below $1,900 price level. Recently gold was retracing a rally from around $1,800 to August 7 record high of $2,089.20 in reaction to U.S. dollar advance, among other factors. Then gold has bounced from the support level marked by mid-August local low of around $1,875, as we can see on the daily chart ( the chart includes today’s intraday data ):
Gold is unchanged this morning, as it is extending a short-term consolidation. What about the other precious metals? Silver lost 0.7% on Thursday and today it is 0.3% higher. Platinum lost 0.24% and today it is 0.7% lower. Palladium gained just 0.03% yesterday and today it is 0.7% lower. So precious metals are mixed this morning.
