Daily Gold News: Jan. 25 – Gold Price Going Sideways

Gold remains within a week-long trading range, just below new medium-term highs.

The gold futures contract gained 0.35% on Tuesday, Jan. 24, as it continued to fluctuate along new medium-term highs. Recently the yellow metal advanced on weaker U.S. dollar following economic data releases, among other factors. In early January it fluctuated after Central Banks’ monetary policy releases, stock markets’ volatility. Today gold is trading lower, but it’s still within its week-long trading range, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):

The gold price is 0.7% lower, as it is trading along the $1,920 level. What about the other precious metals? Silver is 1.2% lower, platinum is 1.8% lower and palladium is 1.1% lower. So the main precious metals’ prices are lower this morning.

Yesterday’s PMI numbers release has been mixed, and today we won’t get any new important economic data announcements, however, we will get the BOC interest rate decision at 10:00 a.m. The market will be waiting for tomorrow’s U.S. Advance GDP number release.
