Daily Gold News: Thursday, Mar. 24 – Gold Price is Closer to $1,950 Again

Gold Price Analysis

The gold futures contract gained 0.82% on Wednesday, Mar 23., following its Tuesday’s decline of 0.4%, as it further extended a short-term consolidation. The market fluctuates above the $1,900 level after retracing most of the rally to the March 8 local high of $2,078.80. This morning gold is trading along the recent local highs, 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 closer to the $1,950 level again. What about the other precious metals? Silver is virtually flat, platinum is 0.1% higher and palladium is 0.7% higher. So the main precious metals’ prices are higher this morning.
