The gold futures contract lost 2.05% on Wednesday, as it extended its short-term downtrend following breaking below the price level of $1,900. The market is the lowest since late July. Gold keeps retracing its rally from around $1,800 to August 7 record high of $2,089.20 in reaction to U.S. dollar rally, among other factors. Gold also broke below its mid-August local low, as we can see on the daily chart:
Gold is 0.6% lower this morning, as it is trading along yesterday’s low. What about the other precious metals? Silver lost 5.78% on Wednesday and today it is 2.8% lower. Platinum lost 1.7% and today it is 0.2% lower. Palladium gained 1.29% yesterday and today it’s 0.5% lower. So precious metals are mixed this morning.
