Gold Daily News: Friday, January 24

January 24, 2020, 7:01 AM Paul Rejczak

The gold futures gained 0.56% on Thursday, as it got closer to its recent local high of $1,568.80. The yellow metal closed above $1,560 mark for the first time since January 8 run-up followed by a sharp downward reversal. On Wednesday, it has bounced off $1,550 level. Overall, the market continues to trade within a short-term consolidation.

The gold price is currently 0.2% lower, as it is retracing some of yesterday's advance. What about the other precious metals? The silver was relatively weaker than gold, as it failed to break above the last week's Friday's local high. Yesterday it was unchanged and it remained below $18 mark. The platinum is unchanged, as it is still trading above $1,000 mark, and the palladium hovers along the new record high (-0.1%).

Today, the financial markets are watching series of economic data releases from Europe. We will also have the important Retail Sales number in Canada at 8:30 a.m. and the Flash Manufacturing PMI, Flash Services PMI numbers in the U.S. at 9:45 a.m.

Thank you.

Feb Market Overview

Gold Market Overview

Last month, we laid out our gold outlook for 2020. In the February edition of the Market Overview, we update our fundamental analysis to incorporate the latest data, in particular those about the US fiscal policy. As the bipartisan consensus is that deficits don't matter, the perspective for gold this year could be better than we previously thought. Second, we look beyond 2020 and sketch the fundamental trends that will likely shape the global economy and the gold market through the whole 2020s.

Moreover, we will analyze two important recent developments. The first one will be the 2019 repo crisis and the following Fed's intervention in this market. Second, the Riksbank has ended recently its experiment with negative interest rates. What does it all imply for the gold market? We invite you to read our Gold Market Overview and find out!
