The gold futures lost 0.09% on Wednesday, as it fluctuated following Tuesday's post-Fed's rate cut rally. On Friday the price collapsed to $1,564 level despite an ongoing corona virus scare. The recent short-term volatility marked a topping pattern before that sell-off. However, gold retraced its whole decline and yesterday it has been trading along short-term local highs, marked by $1,650 level.

The financial markets went full risk-off last week, as corona virus fears dominated the news. Then we saw a quick Friday's-Monday's relief rally. Tuesday's Fed's rate cut decision led to more short-term volatility, as stock sold off on Tuesday and then rallied on Wednesday. Yesterday we got the ADP Non-Farm Employment Change and the ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI numbers releases. They both have been better than expected and the stock market has rallied by over 4%. On Friday we will get the important U.S. monthly jobs data release. Take a look at our Monday's Market News Report to find out more!
