Gold 150524 Daily Chart

Gold rallied as traders reacted to U.S. inflation report, which indicated that Inflation Rate declined from 3.5% in March to 3.4% in April. Traders were worried that Inflation Rate may increase. U.S. dollar and Treasury yields moved lower after the release of inflation data, providing significant support to precious metals markets.

In case gold manages to settle above the resistance at $2390 – $2400, it will head towards the $2450 level.


Silver 150524 Daily Chart

Silver tests new highs as traders focus on weak dollar and falling Treasury yields. Gold/silver ratio pulled back towards 81, which was bullish for silver.

If silver moves above the $29.50 level, it will head towards the psychologically important $30.00 level.


Platinum 150524 Daily Chart

Platinum  gained more ground amid a broad rally in precious metals markets.

RSI is in the overbought territory, so the risks of a pullback are increasing. However, U.S. dollar’s weakness may provide additional support to platinum markets in the near term.
