The yellow metal is slowly getting back to the March 9 medium-term high of $1,704.30 again. Mounting pandemic fears are supporting the demand side and gold is acting as a safe haven asset. For now, it looks like a consolidation within an uptrend.
Gold is gaining 1.4% this morning, as it is extending its short-term uptrend. What about the other precious metals? Silver lost 1.09% on Friday and today it is 2.5% higher. Platinum lost 1.63% on Friday and today it is up 1.1%. Palladium lost 0.74% on Friday and today it trades 3.6% lower. So precious metals prices are mixed this morning.
Friday’s U.S. Nonfarm Payrolls along with the Unemployment Rate releases have been worse than expected. However, it wasn’t that surprising after the recent Unemployment Claims numbers. And we may see more bad economic data releases in the near future, as they will be revealing coronavirus damage to the economy. Today, investors will wait for the Bank of Canada Business Outlook Survey release at 10:30 a.m. Take a look at our Market News Report to find out about this week’s economic news releases.
