Gold registered its best finish since April 14

Precious metals moved higher Monday. Silver marked the day with a more than two-week settlement high. Gold ended stronger, logging a ten-week high.

Gold for August delivery rose $13.40, or 0.8%, to settle at $1,766.40 an ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange. The close was the highest since April 14 when gold finished at $1,768.90 an ounce for a more than seven-year high.

“While gold is undoubtedly boosted by haven flows due to the economic damage caused by the pandemic as well as concerns over a second wave, there is little doubt that the metal is also finding good support from central-bank money flooding the financial markets,” MarketWatch quoted Fawad Razaqzada, market analyst at ThinkMarkets.

Gold futures ranged from a low of $1,753.50 to a high of $1,776.70. They gained 0.9% last week.

Silver for July delivery added 5.5 cents, or 0.3%, to close at $17.902 an ounce. The settlement was the highest since June 4 when silver ended at $18.061 an ounce. Silver futures traded between $17.86 and $18.19. They surged 2.1% last week.

In other precious metals futures prices on Monday:

  • July platinum settled up $16.40, or 2%, to $843.70 an ounce, ranging from $823 and $857.50.

  • Palladium for September delivery advanced $33.70, or 1.8%, to $1,942.10 an ounce, trading between $1,885.30 and $1,959.10.

In trading action last week, platinum rose 1% and palladium declined 1.6%.
