Gold 100523 Daily Chart

Gold declined towards the support at $2025 despite the pullback in Treasury yields. Traders continued to take profits near yearly highs, and it looks that gold needs additional catalysts to test the resistance near the $2070 level.

If gold settles back below the support at $2025, it will head towards the next support at $2010. A move below $2010 will push gold towards the $2000 level.

Silver 100523 Daily Chart

Silver  pulled back towards the $25.30 level as traders reacted to U.S. inflation data. While Inflation Rate declined, which means that Fed may start cutting rates in the upcoming months, traders are not ready to increase their bullish bets on silver.

A successful test of the support at $25.30 will push silver towards the next support level at $25.00. In case silver settles below $25.00, it will head towards the support at $24.60.
