Daily Gold News: Tuesday, August 23 – Gold Price Fluctuates After the Recent Declines

Gold Price Recap

The gold futures contract lost 0.82% on Monday, August 22, as it further extended its short-term downtrend following last week’s breakdown below the $1,800 price level. On August 10 the market reached new local high of $1,824.60 after lower-than-expected Consumer Price Index release. Since then it has been retracing the advance. This morning gold is trading along its yesterday’s closing price despite strengthening U.S. dolar, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):

Gold is virtually flat this morning, as it is trading along the $1,750 price level. What about the other precious metals? Silver is 0.4% lower, platinum is 0.8% lower and palladium is 0.4% higher. So the main precious metals’ prices are mixed this morning.
