Gold 200524 Daily Chart

Gold tested new highs as traders reacted to geopolitical developments. Demand for safe-haven gold increased after Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi died in mysterious helicopter crash.

Gold made an attempt to settle above the $2450 level but lost momentum as some traders decided to take profits near historic highs. A move above $2450 will push gold towards the $2500 level.


Silver 200524 Daily Chart

Silver tested new highs as the strong rally continued. RSI is in the overbought territory, so the risks of a pullback are rising.

If silver stays above the $31.20 level, it will head towards the resistance at $33.50 – $34.00.


Platinum 200524 Daily Chart

Platinum pulled back as traders decided to take some profits off the table after the strong rally.

In case platinum settles back below the $1050 level, it will head towards the nearest support at $1010 – $1020.
