Daily Gold News: Thursday, August 10 – Gold’s Sharp Downward Reversal Following Friday’s U.S. Jobs Data ReleaseThe gold futures contract has reached another record high on Friday at 2,089.20$. However, the market reversed sharply lower following better-than-expected NFP.
The gold futures contract has reached yet another new record high on Friday at the price level of 2,089.20. However, the market reversed sharply lower following better-than-expected Nonfarm Payrolls release. And it closed 2.00% below Thursday’s closing price, at $2,028.00. Gold price reached the highest in history following U.S. dollar sell-off, among other factors.
Gold is 0.1% lower this morning, as the market is fluctuating following Friday’s downward reversal. What about the other precious metals? Silver lost 3.03% on Friday and today it is 0.1% higher. Platinum lost 4.29% and today it is 0.8% higher. Palladium lost 3.66% on Friday and today it’s also 0.8% higher. So precious metals are trading sideways this morning.
Friday’s Nonfarm Payrolls release has been better than expected at +1.763 million, despite Wednesday’s ADP Non-Farm Employment Change number of only 167,000.
