Daily Gold News: Thursday, August 25 – Gold Price Keeps Bouncing Back

Gold Price Recap

The gold futures contract gained 0.02% on Wednesday, August 24, as it fluctuated following Tuesday’s rebound of 0.7%. On Monday the market reached its short-term low of $1,740.20. Since then gold has been retracing some of the recent declines. This morning the yellow metal is trading higher on weakening U.S. dollar, among other factors, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):

Gold is 0.7% higher, as it is trading closer to the $1,775 price level. What about the other precious metals? Silver is 1.2% higher, platinum is 0.7% higher and palladium is 1.1% higher. So the main precious metals’ prices are higher this morning.
