Gold Daily News: Tuesday, February 18

February 18, 2020, 8:27 AM Paul Rejczak

The gold futures contract gained 0.48% on Friday, as it extended its short-term uptrend. The yellow metal got close to resistance level of $1,600 again, as it reached daily high of $1,588.20. Yesterday, the price of gold went even higher retracing more of its early February downturn, but it is still slightly below February 3 high of $1,598.50.

The recent China virus fears didn't scare risk-on assets' investors, however gold extended its short-term uptrend. This morning it is gaining 0.4%. What about the other precious metals? Silver gained 0.65% on Friday, as it retraced more of the recent decline. It is trading 0.6% higher this morning. Platinum lost 0.61%, and today it is 1.0% higher. Palladium lost 1.46% on Friday, as it bounced off its record highs. This morning it is gaining 0.6%.

The financial markets are digesting today's much worse-than-expected German ZEW Economic Sentiment number release. We also got an overnight profit warning from Apple and stock markets are declining. Investors will also wait for the Empire State Manufacturing Index release at 8:30 a.m. But the most important piece of economic data release this week will be Wednesday's FOMC Meeting Minutes. Take a look at our yesterday's Market News Report to find out more!

Thank you.

In response, the central banks shoots monetary bazookas while the governments are announcing mammoth stimulus packages.

If you feel lost, if you do not know what to think about the epidemic and its impact on the global economy and the gold market, or if you feel that the world has gone mad, you should definitely read this edition of the Market Overview.

As always, we focus on the gold market, so we analyze thoroughly how the epidemic, global recession and the resulting monetary policy and fiscal policy response will affect the price of the yellow metal.
