24K99 News On Friday (November 25), in the U.S. trading after the holiday, gold prices rose modestly, while silver prices fell slightly. Global stock markets were mixed overnight, with broad gains in Europe and broad weakness in Asia. U.S. stock indexes were mixed after the opening bell in New York. Many U.S. stock markets closed early today. Today is usually one of the thinnest trading days of the year in the U.S. In the U.S. market, December gold futures rose slightly and traded at $1,750; December silver futures fell slightly to $21.27.
Today is “Black Friday” in the United States, and holiday shoppers go on a shopping spree. Market watchers, including the Federal Reserve, will be closely watching preliminary results on U.S. consumer spending.
Markets remained subdued later in the week as the number of new coronavirus infections in China was rising at a record pace and the economy slumped due to the government’s lockdown in response to the outbreak. China‘s central bank cut the reserve requirement ratio by 25 basis points on Friday to support the economy. “Combined with other measures to boost the property market and ease COVID-19 restrictions, the RRR cut could be supportive in the medium term at a time when economic growth remains highly uncertain,” said one analyst.
In key outside markets, the U.S. dollar index was slightly higher against a basket of currencies. Crude oil prices on the New York Mercantile Exchange were higher, trading around $79.75 a barrel, and the benchmark U.S. 10-year Treasury yield is currently at 3.722%.
Strategists at Commerzbank see no upside potential for gold at the moment, although it has recovered somewhat from its losses.
“We don’t see any chance of further recovery in the short term.”
“After all, the U.S. labor market (non-farm payrolls are due next Friday) is likely to remain very tight, so the end of the U.S. rate hike cycle remains uncertain.”
“As a non-interest-bearing investment, rising interest rates have a dampening effect on gold.”
