Daily Gold News: Thursday, Oct. 28 – Gold Unchanged at $1,800
The gold futures contract gained 0.30% on Wednesday, as it extended its short-term consolidation following last Friday’s advance and a breakout above the $1,800 price level. On Friday, gold was the highest since Sep. 7 following weakening U.S. dollar and rising stock markets, among other factors. This morning the yellow metal is trading close to the $1,800 price level again, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
Gold is 0.1% lower, as it is trading along its yesterday’s daily closing price. What about the other precious metals? Silver is 0.1% lower, platinum is 0.6% higher and palladium is 2.4% higher. So precious metals’ prices are mixed this morning.
Yesterday’s Durable Goods Orders release has been better than expected at -0.4% vs. a forecast of -1.1%. Today we will get the Advance GDP and Unemployment Claims at 8:30 a.m. and the Pending Home Sales release at 10:00 a.m. We will also have the ECB’s Monetary Policy Statement release at 7:45 a.m.
