Gold, Silver, Platinum – Rising Treasury Yields Put Strong Pressure On Precious Metals
- Gold is trying to settle below the $1865 level as traders react to the economic data from the U.S.
- Silver managed to get out of the recent trading range.
- Platinum tested the support level at $980.
Gold has found itself under strong pressure after the release of the U.S. Non Farm Payrolls report. Treasury yields rallied, while the U.S. dollar gained upside momentum against a broad basket of currencies, which was bearish for gold markets.
Silver moved out of the recent trading range and gained strong downside momentum. Currently, silver is trying to settle below the $22.50 level. Traders prepare for a more hawkish Fed, and today’s breakout provides an opportunitty to move towards the support near the $21 level.
Platinum settled below the $1000 level and tested the support at $980 amid a broad sell-off in precious metals markets. Traders stay focused on the robust rebound of the American currency. If platinum settles below $980, it will move towards the next support level at $950.
