Gold Gold continues to consolidate above the $1,200/oz level and traded in a range between $1,207/oz and $1,215/oz overnight in Asia. Gold has risen slightly in European trade as the dollar has come under pressure. The poor retail sales have created concerns about the health of the US consumer and the other poor recent data on jobs and trade and budget deficits may see the dollar come under pressure again. Support for gold is at $1,195/oz and resistance is at $1,217.90/oz.
Gold Gold rose 1.26% yesterday after the Portuguese debt downgrade; silver rose 2%. Gold has gradually edged up in Asian and early European trade. It may challenge resistance at yesterday's high of $1,217.90/oz but if it falls below the recent trading range of $1,210/oz to $1,215/oz it could quickly fall to short term support of $1,195/oz and $1,190/oz. Gold is currently trading at $1,213/oz and in euro, GBP, CHF, and JPY terms, at €955/oz, £795/oz, CHF 1,284/oz, JPY 107,498/oz respectively.
The Irish Hospice Foundation’s Dublin to Paris Cycle is being co-sponsored by GoldCore and the cycle is being done by GoldCore’s Executive Director, Mark O’Byrne. The cycle is 500 kilometers long and starts at 7:30am on Sunday July 18th in Dublin and arrives in Paris, 5 days later on Thursday, the 22nd of July.
Gold Gold spiked higher today in all currencies as Portugal's downgrading and prices below $1,200/oz led to buying. The euro fell against both the dollar and gold (from €954 to €960 per ounce - see chart) on Moody's two-notch downgrade of Portugal. The downgrade was expected but it has ignited concerns that the European sovereign debt markets remain vulnerable, leading to continuing safe haven demand for gold. Lingering concerns over the European bank stress tests and the European banking system are also supportive.
Gold Gold is lower in Asian and early European trading on low volume as the dollar has risen and renewed risk appetite has resulted in tentative gains in equity markets. Gold's marginally higher weekly close last week was positive from a technical point of view and could lead to follow through this week as momentum following traders and funds "make the trend their friend". Gold is currently trading at $1,207/oz and in euro, GBP, CHF, and JPY terms, at €960/oz, £804/oz, CHF 1,284/oz, JPY 106,825/oz respectively.
Gold Gold fell $2.50 to $1195.30/oz yesterday and is now down 1% on the week. It traded sideways in Asia and down in early European trading. Another lower weekly close will again be bearish technically and would suggest that further retrenchment and consolidation may take place. A higher close today and on the week would help reverse the technical damage done recently. Gold is currently trading at $1,197/oz and in euro, GBP, CHF, and JPY terms, at €944/oz, £788/oz, CHF 1,261/oz, JPY 105,998/oz respectively.
Gold Gold fell to an inter day six week low yesterday of $1,184.75/oz yesterday before a strong rebound which saw it close higher on the day at $1,197.80/oz. It rose above $1200/oz in Asian trade to $1,207.75/oz prior to giving up some of those gains in early European trade. Many traders and investors who have nee on the sideline in recent weeks see the present sell off as a buying opportunity. Gold is currently trading at $1,200/oz and in euro, GBP, CHF, and JPY terms, at €948/oz, £792/oz, CHF 1,263/oz, JPY 105,665/oz respectively.
Gold Gold has had a quite start to the week trading in a tight range between $1,210/oz and $1,215/oz so far in Asian and early European trading. With the US out for the Independence Day holiday it looks set to be a quite day although low volumes could result in volatility. A close below $1,200/oz could see gold fall to support at $1.185/oz and strong support at $1,165/oz. Gold is currently trading at $1,210/oz and in euro, GBP, CHF, and JPY terms, at €966/oz, £800/oz, CHF 1,285/oz, JPY 106,249/oz respectively.
Gold Gold rose again yesterday in dollars and other currencies, especially sterling which fell against nearly all currencies (see chart below). Gold is currently trading at $1,244/oz and in Euro, GBP, CHF, and JPY terms, gold is trading at €1,008/oz, £830/oz, CHF 1,328/oz, JPY 109,574/oz respectively.
