Daily Gold News: Friday, Jan. 22 – Gold Erasing Wednesday’s Advance

Paul Rejczak
·3-min read

The gold futures contract was virtually unchanged on Thursday, as it fluctuated following breaking above the recent trading range. The market gave back almost all of its December’s advance recently. On Wednesday gold retraced some of that decline and it broke above $1,850 price level. However, today the market is getting back lower again, as we can see on the daily chart ( the chart includes today’s intraday data ):

Gold is 1.6% lower this morning, as it is trading closer to its Wednesday’s low. What about the other precious metals? Silver gained 0.34% on Thursday and today it is 3.1% lower. Platinum gained 1.04% yesterday and today it is 3.8% lower. Palladium lost 1.17% and today it is 0.6% lower. So precious metals are lower this morning.

Yesterday’s Unemployment Claims release has been slightly better than expected at 900,000. Today the markets will wait for the U.S. Flash Manufacturing PMI, Flash Services PMI releases.
