Daily Gold News: Wednesday, Dec. 22 – Gold Remains Slightly Below $1,800 Level
The gold futures contract lost 0.33% on Tuesday, as it retraced some more of the recent advance and a breakout above the $1,800 level after last Wednesday’s FOMC Monetary Policy release. It got back above the $1,800 level and on Friday it traded as high as $1,815. This morning the yellow metal is trading within its yesterday’s daily range, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
Gold is 0.1% higher this morning, as it is trading below the $1,800 level. What about the other precious metals? Silver is 0.6% higher, platinum is 0.3% higher and palladium is 1.9% higher. So precious metals’ prices are higher this morning.
