Daily Gold News: Precious Metals Fluctuate Ahead of Fed Talk
The gold futures contract gained 0.66% on Monday, as it continued to fluctuate following the recent advance. 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 still trading within a short-term consolidation. What about the other precious metals? Silver gained 2.21% on Monday and today it is 0.3% lower. Platinum gained 1.49% and today it is 1.6% lower. Palladium gained 2.30% on Monday and today it is unchanged. So precious metals are mixed this morning.
Yesterday’s ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI release has been slightly better than expected at 57.8. Today we will get some more Fed/ECB talk. There will be the Fed Chair Powell speech at 10:40 a.m.
Let’s focus on Friday’s Nonfarm Payrolls release. Where will the price of gold go following last week’s news?

The first chart shows price paths 5 days before and 10 days after the NFP release. The last three cases are marked with dashed lines. Gold gained around 1% in July and September, but in August it lost almost 4%.
