Gold, Silver, Platinum, Palladium

The gold futures contract has extended its sell-off yesterday before bouncing from new short-term low of $1,874.20 and retracing some of the decline. The market fell 10.3% off its last Friday’s new record high price level of $2,089.20. Gold reversed sharply lower following Friday’s Nonfarm Payrolls release, among other factors. For now, yesterday’s bounce looks like an upward correction, as we can see on the daily chart:

Gold is 1.2% higher this morning, as it is trading along $1,950 price level. What about the other precious metals? Silver lost 0.27% on Wednesday and today it is 4.2% higher. Platinum lost 1.26% and today it is 2.6% higher. Palladium lost 0.31% on Wednesday and today it’s 1.0% higher. So precious metals are retracing some more of their recent decline this morning.

Yesterday’s U.S. Consumer Price Index release has been bigger than expected at +0.6%. Just like Tuesday’s Producer’s inflation gauge. Today we will get the Unemployment Claims number at 8:30 a.m. And the markets will be waiting for tomorrow’s Retail Sales release.
